ZION, 18, just arrived home from college for Christmas break and has one night to consummate his newly formed relationship with LANISE BELL, 16 who became the smartest, finest, and "freakiest" girl at his high school alma mater after she lost 75 pounds this past summer at fat camp.

Uwe Boll makes better movies
31 July 2006 | by (Compton, California) – See all my reviews

I only gave it one star because that was the lowest I could give it. It was really painful to watch, as a matter of fact it made my head hurt. Comedies like these are wannabe ripoff's of movies like American Pie and Don't be a Menace. The only difference is that those movies are Oscar winners compared to this. I mean it when I say that Uwe Boll makes better movies and if you don't believe me go check out House of the Dead. If anything, the only thing that is OK or good is the editing, other than that it's probably the worst movie I've ever seen. Being from the city where this plot takes place, it personally hits a nerve with me. There's so much more to film here, so many more serious issues and this is what you (the filmmaker) would like to portray. How about making a documentary on how gangs kill each other in Compton and bringing that to the world rather then a very poorly done movie. Thanks for contributing to the reputation of the city as the 3rd worst city in the US. It's people who make movies like these that make me want to move out of here faster and make me feel ashamed of even saying that I'm from Compton.
