This was a decent little flick...
4 September 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie the other night from blockbuster, thinking that it was going to be another really bad T & A flick or something like it because The Prodigy wasn't rated and it didn't have any name actors in it. Turns out it wasn't a bad movie. It wasn't the best movie either. At times, the story line was a little weak, but it picked up and there weren't any major holes. The acting was alright, although the dialog definitely needed some help. The little kid was pretty good, funny at times, and his "white" older brother figure, played by Robert Foreman, did a good job of playing the off beat "insensitive- turned-caring" frat boy. Overall, I was surprised to see something a little different than the standard college romp like American Pie, which I'm sick of at this point.
