Storyline

An innocent teenage prank plunges three high school girls into a world of chaos after the target of their torment turns up dead, and the police seek the evidence needed to charge them with murder. Bianca is furious. Her boyfriend has been going out with Dory behind her back, and now it's time to make the other girl pay. With the help of her best friends Fallyn and Sarah, Bianca lures Dory far from home, and abandons her in the middle of nowhere. Soon thereafter, the local police discover Dory's body on the outskirts of town, and race to catch her killer. When the time comes for someone to take the fall, growing tensions between the three girls lead to a cover-up that quickly turns deadly. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Dory is in the back of Sarah's car on the way to the "frat party" you see her remove her hair barrette from the right side of her hair and place it on the back seat. Then when they reach their destination she is again wearing the barrette in her hair. Later, Sarah approaches Fallyn at school with the same barrette wrapped in a tissue and tells her that she found it in the back of her car. See more »

Teenage Pranks We've Seen Before
28 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This very familiar story may have been inspired by several real life crimes, cobbled together for this predictable exercise. Three teenage girls, led by a bully, gang up against a fourth girl and inadvertently kill her while trying to "teach her a lesson". Among the remaining three, mostly-innocent Bianca is also conveniently mostly-at-odds with her single mother and has left a trail of mostly-damning clues; the second girl, Sarah, is a weak-willed asthmatic follower, and the third, Fallon, is an ice cold, manipulating sociopath. Predictably, the most decent people in the story suffer the earliest consequences, as if to underscore the point that no good deed goes unpunished. Because she is the first to spill the beans, Bianca is charged with the crime ("Accused at 17") and conspired against by the other two. Trying to clear her daughter's name, Bianca's mother investigates but has her daughter's habit of leaving misleading clues when Sarah is subsequently also found dead. Evil Fallon plants evidence and tells lies, and also has a shallow, narcissistic mother who sunbathes by their pool, practices yoga and drinks martini's from an over-sized martini glass. The only familiar actor in the cast is William R. Moses, wasted in a one-note role as Fallon's clueless but decent father. It all leads to a formulaic conclusion where everything is revealed in one scene less than five minutes before the movie ends. You sort of see it coming.
