She decides to stay until the next morning, but during the night she finds that the group indeed abducted her to use and tape her in sexual orgy. Written by

This thing is a failed attempt to create an atmosphere of suspense relating to an abduction for sexual purposes of a fashion model. Unfortunately, it is difficult to care a good deal about what happens to the model, played limply by Jessica Alba, whose sole expression seems related to a struggle with constipation. The script is somewhat incoherent and lacking in focus, although poor editing can't have helped. As example, the title of the film is made a non-sequiter from the goings-on. Kevin Whately performs well in his wan part; the other players struggle with the scenario. John Duigan has directed far better; the occasional attempts at humor are best left unacknowledged.
