Did You Know?

Scott drives out from the Detroit area to the Abbey twins at University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. That is less than fifty miles, one way, so it is probably a little under an hour, but could be a little over an hour at most. While the twins knew he hadn't spent an entire night driving, they might have been complimented when they realized that he had made a 100 mile round trip to reconnect with them.See more »

Wanted to like it, but script will not allow..., 7 August 2011
Author: AMadLane from Detroit

I really did want to like it. It was all shot here in the Detroit area, but it doesn't feel like it -- it has more of a generic, anywhere feel, and that's okay.

My biggest issue with it is that the script rings totally false. These are young people anywhere from high school sophomores (thus, about 15) to about-to-be second-year college students (thus about 19) -- and they all behave like 11-year-olds. Are we really to believe that people this age get all put-offish over mere kissing?! What world does the writer/director inhabit? This opened the same week as the fine film "Terri," and that movie just crushes this one. Here, the editing is too loose, the acting is average at best across the board, and by the 20th time some guy announces "I want to kiss you" or the like, you're just so bored with it all.

A "freshman sleepover" in the University of Michigan gymnasium? With old women "chaperones" guarding/falling asleep at the door? May be, but I sure can't imagine it.
