A wealthy teenager who suddenly loses her money will go to any lengths to get it back in this made-for-cable thriller. Kristen and Jason are a pair of seniors at an exclusive private high school; they run with a crowd of rich kids more interested in judging others by their wealth or social status than their qualities as people. Kristen has been accepted into Harvard, but learns that her plans may have to change when the business owned by her father (in tandem with Jason's family) suddenly goes belly-up after years of success, leaving both of their families flat broke. Trying not to think about her problems, Kristen goes away for the weekend with Jason and a group of their friends. One of the guests, Richard, is a scholarship student who comes from a economically disadvantaged family and doesn't fit in with many of the other kids. Over the course of the weekend, Richard discovers that a lottery ticket he bought earlier in the week is a winner, and he's now worth several million dollars... Written by Schleppy

The Numbers Just Don't Add Up
21 August 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact that this was a Made-For-TV movie (and an obvious one at that: ie., cheap looking), CLASS WARFARE left me wishing I could get my money back, and considering this lame production was partially funded through Canadian dollars, I might just be entitled.

What made me sit through it in the first place was seeing actress Lindsey McKeon, who I've watched for the last couple years in her role as "goody-goody" Mara Lewis on the soap-opera GUIDING LIGHT, taking a turn at playing "the bad girl" for a change.

Surprisingly she does quite well, as Kristen, a spoiled rich-b*tch who suddenly finds herself dirt-poor, but with a conniving streak, and a twist of fate, that will possibly change her fortunes back around. The twist of fate is provided in the character of Richard (Robin Dunne), a socially-radical outcast who discovers that he has just gone from having nothing to winning $23 million on a lottery ticket. Now, put Richard, Kristen, her jock-boyfriend Jason (Wade Carpenter), and their camcorder-obsessed mutual buddy Graham (Dave McGowan) together for the weekend in a remote cabin, cut off from the world by storms, and just guess what unfolds.

The film suffers from congesting both the story and characters'personas and motives too much. Everyone is pretty one-dimensional and it doesn't take a rocket-scientist to figure out that some things, and some people, are going to go very bad, very quickly. I don't think this is that original a plot and it doesn't go out of it's way to make itself anything more. The acting is OK, McKeon is spot-on as the manipulative female lead, and Dunne is very good, perhaps a little too good at times, but no one else is worth writing home about. The only other real credit I can give the film is the one twist I didn't see coming towards the end (not the very end though, that one is so obvious it hurts). Regardless, I sat through all of it and lived to tell the tale so I can't say it was a complete write-off.

4/10. A "something-to-watch-when-nothing-else-is-on" type movie.
