Trivia

The Police car that we see in the background when the cop is questioning Cody and James was actually belonged to the film's Sound Designer, 'Jonathan Mohs' - an early 1990s Ford Thunderbird. Employed for use at the last minute, the car had a bad battery which required someone to start and run the engine a few minutes between each take to recharge and re-brighten the headlights.

Just...Don't Watch It
9 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly don't have to much to say.

This is reaaaally terrible. I first rented it because it looked interesting and some of the best movies I have ever seen that isn't dumb-looking was unknown to me. So I picked it up and then later I checked IMDb and noticed the bad ratings but I had optimism. I watched it....yeah.

The acting is either really dull or really dumb. The characters aren't interesting. The story could work out if they made it well...WORK OUT. It seriously is not worth watching. Forget this movie. Walk away from it or you'll regret it. ....Trust me.

1/10
