I was surprised at the very low score of this movie. It seemed like it would not warrant such a low score. I was proved wrong.
The movie is basically a softcore porno. The character development and acting is on par with a porno. The writing and dialogue is on par with a porno. The cinematography is a small cut above a porno. The sex scenes are a cut below a porno.
I could go into more depth on the reasoning behind those four statements, but it seems pointless to reenact the movie in my head. I'll just say that the dad in the movie acts cartoonishly evil. The nurse is very poorly developed and comes off as an implausible character. The daughter seems to have rapid changes in character shift for no apparent reason. And the other characters are essentially beside the point.
