Quotes

Jake: You tell people you steal and they never really trust you after that. I like it better when people don't trust me. I like it better when people don't like me.Then at least I know what to expect. It's a forgone conclusion; then I know not to need them.

No please, steal me. Away from the room where they play this movie.
1 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was bad. I'm sorry, but it was poorly scripted, poorly acted, and poorly executed. The only good thing I can say about this movie is the photography. The camera angles were about the only thing that seemed really thought out and even then, sometimes, they were ineffectively used.

There were so many cut scenes either flashbacks, foreshadowing, or dream sequences (i could never tell) that made absolutely no sense.

Also, the plot went nowhere. Basically, kleptomaniac sex magnet teen (Jake) enters small town, seduces women and men alike (although i failed to find him very charming), steals some more, and then leaves again. He seems to have something of an Oedipus complex as well, but we never really understand why. We never learn anything about his mother and why he's been searching so desperately for her. In fact, We learn very little about many of his relationships with the other characters. For instance, we don't know why he instantly becomes friends with Tucker after attempting to steal his car radio, we don't know why Tucker's mother is simultaneously "panicked" by and apparently attracted to Jake, just that she often stares at him and has somewhat suggestive conversations with him/about him while at the same time seeming very happy with her husband. For so many interactions with so many different characters, one would hope that their individual perspectives would be explained in some way or that Jake himself could reflect their perspectives on to the audience. But Jake's perspective too, is rather underdeveloped and all of his inner monologues are just poetic, vague explanations of why he likes to steal.
