What billiards would be like on Cinemax.
13 June 2006 | by (Athens, Georgia) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie from my cable pay-per-view last night, and being interested in the Atlanta film scene and what it has to offer, I had been eager to check this movie out for a while.

I won't say I wasted my money, because even the worst movies are fun to take part in. I won't even say it wasn't a good effort to make a movie. I will say that it IS one of the worst examples of transparent attention-whoring I've ever seen in my life. I had to stop watching after about 30 minutes because I couldn't take any more.

From what I gathered, the movie is about pool-playing. There are lots of shots of billiard balls. There are lots of shots of a red pool table. There are lots of shots of people who can't act, acting like they are playing pool. And, for some unknown reason, there are girls kissing each other. This always leads to nothing other than random titillation for random titillation's sake. Also, someone involved with the production owns a big, pretty house, like you would find in any Atlanta suburb--white, drab, with loads of mini-blinds and some sort of art on the walls. He or she must also know everyone in the cast, because they almost all act like they got the part based solely on looks. And, whoever owns the house owns a pool table.

Wow. Is that where they got the idea to make this? If they would have spent a little more time doing something good instead of doing something that they thought would be cool, I would have enjoyed the movie even with the acting problems. (Having said that...there is a good performance by--well, I don't know her name, but she was the only girl to not be involved in a completely needless lesbian almost-sex scene within the first 20 minutes. This is how engrossed I was--I can't even remember the actor or character names.) There was ONE thing I liked about the movie. Toward the beginning, there were a couple of slow-motion shots that looked great. They were ruined by a voice-over, but they still looked less like video and were impressive for a few, brief moments. Yet, they also represent the same problem I mentioned earlier...it seemed like the shots were added simply because they looked "cool," even though they were completely unnecessary.

Honestly, I wanted to like it, and maybe I missed the good parts by shutting it off after a half-hour. But, also honestly, I don't care what I missed. What I saw was an in-joke of a movie that I didn't want to be invited to in the first place. One out of ten. That's a bad game of pool.
