Trivia

Joel Gretsch had to be persuaded into taking his shirt off in the sex scene as he felt that his body wasn't in good enough shape. (As can be seen by his excellent physique in the final edit, Gretsch needn't have worried.) See more »

Goofs

When Abby is sitting on the stairs after the nighttime needle thing Eve tells her that she's been asleep for three days. Abby immediately freaks out silently and looks down at the area where the needle was injected - on the right arm, the needle (both times) was injected on the left. See more »

A new actress makes this movie work
4 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rent a lot of movies. I find some unexpected gems, a lot that get categorized as idle entertainment, and some that make me curse myself for renting movies in the first place. This movie solidly fits into the idle entertainment category, as I could see the end result taking shape way too early in the viewing process. Without giving away anything, the one thing that stands out in this movie is the acting of Jordan Hinson. She was cast as what she is...a teenager. But throughout the entire movie, she goes above and beyond what (I would think) would normally be expected, and delivers an outstanding performance. I think she was the true star of the movie, though you have to look at the fine print on the back of the DVD to find her name. If you want to see a diamond in the rough, look here. She makes the movie worth viewing.
