This movie was so awful I felt compelled to write a review. Do not waste your time or money on this movie in any way shape or form. Even if someone offers to give it to you and pay you to watch it... don't.

I don't know if the acting could be any more terrible.. the cliché voice overs, stereotypes, and just plain wooden acting of all of the actors and actresses in this movie are a total turnoff from the opening moment. The funny thing is that Amber Heard and Britney Snow are actually pretty descent actresses so it was kind of painful to watch them in this.

I finally shut it off about 2/3 through because I couldn't care less what happened to any of the characters.
