Basically a weak remake of Misery. Only with a Woman involved., 12 October 2010
Author: callanvass

Credit. IMDb Mike was the star quarterback in a blue-collar small town where football is everything. After receiving a scholarship to Northwestern University, he returns home over Christmas break and everyone is surprised to see him with a new girlfriend, Elizabeth, a pretty rich girl from Chicago. No one is more shocked than Mike's homecoming queen ex-girlfriend, Shelby, who desperately wants Elizabeth out of the picture. After a freak car accident leaves an injured Elizabeth at the mercy of Shelby, all hell breaks loose as Shelby does everything it takes to get Mike back.

While watching Homecoming, I could not cope with the overwhelming sense of similarity. And then it completely hit me, Misery!. It so desperately wants to emulate that movie, but it doesn't have the talent, or the script to pull it off. Mischa Barton is often excellent as the overly obsessed, vengeance filled woman. But I felt no sympathy for the characters. Mike|Long| himself, in my opinion, is a bit of a jerk. Elizabeth|Stroup| Doesn't have that much character to speak of. The characters were just poorly developed. As the movie was becoming close to ending, I was just dying for it to end. If it wasn't for Mischa Barton, I would have been truly tortured.

Performances. Mischa Barton is gorgeous to look at, and a very credible actress to boot, at least here she is. She's not only a convincing psychopath, but her pain is also felt. That's one of the few smart moves this movie made, making you emphasize and fear her. Jessica Stroup is bland to say the least, and I didn't really care what happened to her. Matt Long is nothing more than a charismatic less Jock, who I wanted to slap silly on more than one occasion. Michael Landes plays a decent supporting character, much like he did in Final Destination 2.

Bottom line. This is a boring remake of Misery for P.G lovers. I didn't feel any tension, I wasn't thrilled. In fact I was bored 50% of the time. Worth a look I guess, but even that is pushing it.

4/10 |Bordering on a 3|
