He has become the star swimmer of his high school team, so much so that scouts from Stanford University are coming in a week's time to watch Ben swim.

Despite Ben making it clear that he is in a committed relationship, Madison seduces him, the seduction to which he succumbs. They agree afterward that their encounter was a one-time only event, but Ben slowly comes to the realization that despite Madison's assertions to the contrary, she has more in mind with him.

Goofs

When Ben and Madison are in the pool the first time, at one point there is a hand on Ben's right shoulder. It is certainly not Ben's own hand, nor is it Madison's; it belongs to a third person, although no such person is supposed to be in the scene. See more »

On par with Urban Legend and the other teen flix
6 September 2002 | by (Stockton, CA) – See all my reviews

Have to admit that I enjoy watching the infamous teen horror films. Don't get me wrong, they probably won't be nominated for any Academy Awards, but they're not a waste of a movie ticket either.

Both Jesse Bradford and Erika Christensen carry the film well. Although much of the plot remains predictable, with a lot of help from the trailers, there are still a few plot twists that will keep viewers interested. Madison Bell (Christensen) is the new student who gets what she wants, at any cost. Obession can be a very interesting and intriguing game as she sets her sights on Ben Cronin (Bradford). However, Ben already has the perfect life as a high school student (a chance at Stanford, the perfect girl and a solid swimming career. Throw a monkey wrench into the equation, and Ben's world spins out of control.

A good movie to see on a date, or if City by the Sea isn't appealing. Leave the youngsters at home on this one.
