I thoroughly enjoyed this movie!
30 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie from the very moment it started and this is one movie that I highly recommend!

The twists and turns in it will surprise you!

There were scenes which I thought would end up a certain way but the writer/director (James Ward) shows how talented he is when the twists come in and you find yourself going "omg!"

While parts of it surprised me, other parts of it had me laughing out loud!

I found the acting in it to be of high quality, even better than some of the "big screen" movies I have seen recently!

After watching it again, I realized I know some people who are like some of the characters in this movie! lol

I won't reveal any spoilers in this review but I will encourage you to get this movie!

It's one that you will watch again and enjoy sharing with friends and family!

I know I do!

I give it 10 out of 10 stars :)
