Very Bad movie...
24 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can not agree more with "craning10" this film was a waste of my time and I do not recommend it to anyone. Craning10 said it all no story, bad acting ( very bad acting ), bad camera work, worst producing I've seen in a long time. Towards the 15min mark I started to fast forwards because I couldn't stand it any more; even the comedy was bad. Although I actually liked the music, I think they played a few blue classics and some nice vocals too. But other than those rare moments the film sucked. The plot should be the one girl that is cheating on 2 guys due to the lack of contact and the abandonment from her mother, but it just ends up making a big mess of an already messed up movie. Is like trying to put together a distorted mental image directly from someone's head without any guidelines, needless to say what you end up with is a big abstract mess, which in this case has some bad acted sex scenes and a half covered, semi-transparent, half a nipple slip from a supper hot actress.
