Quotes

Nathan: I don't want people from high school knowing about me.
Maggie: Why? Who cares?
Nathan: Because it makes them feel superior. On top of that, they get this self-satisfying look on their face like they knew all along. It pisses me off.
Maggie: I can flirt with who I want.
Nathan: You're my date.
Maggie: I am not your date.
Nathan: Well I consider you my date. If you don't want to play by the rules you can just fuck off. You're a prop and your replaceable.

Nothing Rang True, Not Even the Tacked-On Ending
23 February 2008 | by (wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I agree with another reviewer here about the film's decent technical quality, but I wouldn't extend that to acting. Amber Benson is good, actually, but the rest of the cast is pretty much sub-par. I particularly thought many of Cole Williams' lines were read poorly.

The story could have been interesting, but the script didn't do it justice. The dialog sounded forced and stilted much of the time. It just didn't ring true, didn't sound like true life. When the plot conflict develops, I couldn't quite see the reason for it. There didn't seem to be anything happening that hadn't happened before so I couldn't understand the characters' reactions.

It was difficult not to compare this movie to Sideways. Not that they had all that much in common except the location, but that was enough to have me constantly thinking of how much better this movie could have been.
