We're all capable of doing bad things. Lord knows I've done my share. Things I'm truly ashamed of. But should my life, so young and full of sweet promise, be tragically cut down before it ever had a chance to shine? If I ever get out of her, as God is my witness, somebody's gonna pay. Or as the great German philosopher Fred Nitsche once said: "that which does not kill us, is gonna wish it had," because we are about to Fed ex it's sorry ass back to skank ...

I don't think that this movie has aspirations to greatness, but it was enjoyable enough, and has some very good performances.
Top of the list for me was Jane McGregor. She really gave her all in playing Starla who was, after all, not a particularly sympathetic character. She has a real flair for comedy - at the tender age of 19 - and is very attractive as well. I will be looking out for Jane's work in future.
I also enjoyed the minor role from the little brother, not too overdone, and the mother with the ever present "iced tea".
Overall, a pleasant diversion, fairly lightweight, but with some good work from the cast.
