Another not-funny comedy!
29 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is basically a teen angst comedy that tries to incorporate postmodern narrative and editing elements similar to those in David Lynch's Mullholland Drive. The result is pretty much a mess. The film has an inconsistent tone that leaves the viewer confused and unsatisfied. Character development is practically nil here, and I personally never cared about or identified with anyone in the movie. The dialogue is also pretty bad in places. Probably the worst problem with the film is the casting. None of the main actors, with the exception of Krystin Pellerin as Ellen, were right for their roles. Vincent Kartheiser is normally pretty good, but he's a slight, sensitive-looking young man. It doesn't matter that they put him in ill-fitting, grungy clothes or plunked an ugly wig on his head, he is still unconvincing as a bad-ass. Sarah Carter (who also wears a wig throughout the film, as well as sunglasses-- maybe she's a Corey Hart fan) and Geoffry Arend aren't much better.

It's a shame, really, because there are lots of interesting ideas in the story, and there are moments in the film that are good. Unfortunately, there aren't enough of them to justify recommending what is otherwise an unmemorable and bland movie.
