Movie Made Me Uncomfortable
28 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie made me uncomfortable. The dressing, the way the characters spoke, the way they act is completely unrealistic. I'm not sure the writer had any knowledge of how teenagers really are. There are no schools on this planet who allow teachers and students to interact like that. Some of the actors were so bad, I wondered how they even got hired. Some of the parts were so cringe worthy I wanted to hide under a pillow. The music is awkward too, and the sex scenes, language and drug use is ridiculous. The plot is horrible too. this stuff would never happen in real life. The two main character speak in complete monotone the whole time, display no emotion, say ridiculous things. All around bad.
