Storyline

Scott Baio, ex-child star in real life, plays a young man who goes to visit an old friend of his who resides in California. His friend's got it all: Nice house, great car, lots of neat accessories, friends, and, or course, women. But after Baio's friend mysteriously disappears, and Baio suspects foul play in a boating accident, Baio adapts to the persona of his friend for a while. But this idea backfires when the bad guys who killed his friend start coming after Baio, thinking they didn't succeed in their job. Or is that what it's all about?

Strong acting, beautiful camera work, awful script
6 March 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Basically my title, one-line summary sums up how I feel about this film. The acting was strong for all of the characters involved. At times James Wilder was a bit over the top, and SCott Baio's accent didn't work for me. Krista Allen was good- not her best work, but she wasn't given a whole lot to do. The cinematography was beautiful, especially the establishing shots of Santa Monica. The camera work was obviously thoughtful and with great care, and I just wish the writers had taken the same passion and interest to the script. There were ridiculous amounts of summary dialogue, and the script had the character of Syd calling Barry "Cowboy" every other word out of her mouth. If they stuck to the golden rule of showing and not telling, the film would have been great. It's especially fun to watch in french, with the dubbed language over the picture
