Storyline

In Rio de Janeiro, Gloria is an ambitious young woman, whose father is bankrupted. When the son of his business partner, Marcos, arrives in Rio, her father asks Gloria to have a trip with him in their boat Boa Vida. Gloria, her boyfriend Danny and their common friend Jeff get Marcos in his hotel and they go to Angra dos Reis. While in the sea, they drink Caipirinha and beer, and Gloria flirts with the wealthy Marcos. The jealous Danny sees they kissing each other, throws Marcos in the water with a lifebuoy and drives the boat to a distant island to scare Marcos. However, they have a problem with the propellers and when they return to the spot, they do not find Marcos anymore. Afraid of the consequences of his possible drowning, they discuss alibis and how to resolve the situation, shattering their relationship in an environment of high-tension and selfishness. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Deadbeat
27 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. The script is the first thing that "died." It appeared that the cast was improvising the dialogue as they went along. Add to that, the award for worst sound editing. What a great combo: bad dialogue that you have to work at to understand!

All the characters muddled through the simplistic plot. The real mystery comes when you try to figure out how garbage like this ever got the green light.
