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.
