Continuity: When Gretchen and her mom, with Ricky following on his motorcycle, leave their house and head off to the prom, it is still mid-afternoon as indicated by the level of sunlight and shadows. Yet when they arrive at the prom at the high school, which isn't very far away from where Gretchen lives, it is already completely dark out.See more »

Ignorance at it's finest, 27 June 2011

Not worth the time for a review. But since says that I have to write at least ten lines, here goes.

The wigs were ridiculous, the actors, especially the males were a joke. I kept hoping, waiting for this movie to get good because I love independent films, but not only was the movie very slow paced, it was not at all good.

This movies showed what should have been the progression of the main character, but all she did was slide backwards. It was so boring that I thought of changing the channel the whole way through, but decided I would try to be fair and watch it entirely. In the final scene,my first thought was that I had just wasted a half an hour.
