worst movie ever!!!!!!!!!
23 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie was honestly the worst movie ever! it was a flat liner big time. it didn't even come across as trendy or artistic - it was more like a 18 yr. old asshole spying on his crush, obsessing over the lamest events of her days. her driving scenes were so unrealistic - there was no way this dummy didn't at least scratch the car. the "misadventures" were pathetic, she was pathetic and whom ever gave this movie an 8 was equally as delusional as the main character.... if i could have giving this movie a zero i would have. the main characters were not attractive or likable at all. it would have been one thing if she was cute or even funny....
