Typical rich kid movie, 29 August 2010
Author: struck21 from United States

Cover of the DVD case says "Fast times at Richmond High meet Kids" No not really.

It was just another movie about rich kids using someone to get something that backfires. The whole movie was transparent beyond words. If you couldn't figure out what was gonna happen within the first twenty minutes, then you weren't watching it.

The acting is pretty solid. Lizzy Caplan is great as she always is. John Patrick Amedori was great also, he did a fabulous job. Overall the acting was solid and parts of the story has tons of potential that it never tapped into.
