Numerous mistakes related to competitive swimming - there are no 25 yard races after age 10. The shortest high school race is the 50 freestyle, a sprinter's event that would be accompanied by the 100 freestyle. See more »
Although Being Predictable, This Teen Version of `Fatal Attraction' is not so Bad
Ben Cronin (Jesse Bradford) is an ex-addicted in drugs athlete. He is disputing a participation in the Olympic games and joining Stanford University through swimming. He is in love with his girlfriend Amy Miller (Shiri Appleby) and is a good son, working with his mother in a hospital. When the young woman Madison Bell (Erika Christensen) joins his high-school, he is seduced by her and has an intercourse with her in the swimming pool. Madison chases him, but he turns her down. She becomes obsessed by him and turns his life in hell. This teen version of `Fatal Attraction' is very predicable, but is not a bad movie. The young cast has a good performance and this film is a good entertainment. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): `Fixação' (`Fixation')
