Quotes

[first lines]
Ellie Linton: We're not going to hold back. Recording it like this, it's um, it's so important to us. I guess it's our way of telling us that things matter. That we mean something. Maybe... some of the things we've done... The friends that we've lost, hopefully it all makes a difference somehow.
[regaining her composure]
Ellie Linton: There's only one way to do this. And that's to go back to where this all began.

Not get fooled by the IMDb ratings of this movie....
24 December 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Well this one is short, i hear about this movie and had the chance to watch it, IMDb ratings where great 7,5 and rotten tomatoes as well 88% wow... but again i was fooled, same happen me this week with Unstopable with ratings of 7 over ten, but if you watch this movie, and this one I'm reviewing now, you will find out that all those ratings are faked up by trolls and false reviews... both movies share same bad acting, weak plot and predictable story lines.

For god shake, Casablanca has a 8.8 rating here and this dumb teenage film a 7.5??!!!!! though yourself about this before loosing your time watching this movie ;)
