Horrible
6 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think Scott Elrod is totally hot so when I saw this movie on my recommend list on Netflix I decided to give a try. Big mistake!It's a fashion photographer version of She's All That. Elrod was the only thing to make this movie watchable to the end. Everyone's acting in this movie was so flat even Elrod. I can't even blame them because the dialogue was horrible! As a writer, I would be embarrassed to have this on screen. The guy from the Sopranos was the only one who could carry off his dialogue. There was misplaced scenes that didn't make sense, needed better editing. There was really a need for character development. I'm sure it was a quick shoot for the budget. Don't waste your time, I wish I hadn't wasted mine.
