Mogadore also happens to be a small suburb of Akron, Ohio, not far from where the film takes place and not far from where James Frey, one of the writers of the novel on which this film was based, grew up. Moreover, "Mogadore" means "beautiful" in Arabic and is also the name of a town in Morocco. See more »

The story is relatively good, although it certainly does contain many clichés. There is nothing that makes this movie stand out, though. The acting was terrible, and it was difficult to relate to the main characters and their situation since they showed absolutely no depth of personality.
There are some special effects, and some action in there. But overall I thought it was a pretty bad movie, though I give credit to some of the things that were so bad I couldn't resist laughing.
