It's a fairly clever concept and somewhat original in a sense though most of us have seen similar concepts a few times before. The acting is good and I think that's what makes this movie so entertaining for being low budget. It's a bit above par for say a made for TV lifetime movie that you could watch without grimacing in embarrassment for the movie makers and actors.
At one point, you think OK it's a hoax to teach him a lesson and at another point you think no, it's all genuine and he's so far in, he's almost out. I got the impression that the people behind this production may have went in half baked and when the material was working so well, went ahead with making it a crime drama rather than washing out and turning it into a hokey happy ending Lifetime wino flick.
I must also admit, about half way through I predicted exactly what was taking place but it didn't spoil anything. Like I said, the acting really sold it and they had a clever concept. Just goes to show that budget isn't all it's wrapped up to be nor is lining your credits with iconic names everyone knows.
Worth watching at least once.
