This movie was just awful. I was worried when i saw that it was an MTV production but i wanted to see what all the hype was about. I could not have cared less about the characters in this movie. I felt a complete lack of empathy or sympathy for them. Of course it is not their fault entirely because the screen play was so poorly written and directed that the characters had nothing to bring them to life. The scenes where they were touching on *the meaning of life* left me laughing out loud it was so pathetic. Then there is the part of the film where ben has been hooked on blow doing so much it that he is bleeding at night from his nasal cavity then with a single statement: "I want out", and his life is back to *normal* and he is no longer doing cocaine. We all laughed heartily at that scene.
