Was this a joke?
24 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, um... okay so apparently this is an actual movie, and not the summer project of a second-year community college film student? Which is odd, because I cannot imagine any other way that this film could have gotten made.

Seriously, it was pretty bad. Amateurish all the way through, and not even slightly entertaining. It's reminiscent of a Cinemax late-night T&A flick, but without the charm. I have to assume that the couple of positive reviews here were written by people associated with the production, because no reasonable person would think this was even remotely worthwhile.

It has an interesting enough premise, and I suppose a good film could have been made around it, but this one is an abject failure. Avoid.
