It's like a 'Lifetime' Movie....only worse...
29 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I find it hard to believe that people would just let any ol' person into their own personal private living space without doing a little bit of research about them beforehand.

Mitch (Welzbacher) and Jen (Prikryl) are newlyweds and they invite Mitch's best friend, Danny (Lusk) to move in with them because they are in over their heads when it comes to mortgages and bills. There's no issues there.... but when Danny starts to get back into the dating world and meets Blair (Leal), things start to escalate.

I can understand friends who are married having a roommate -- but when that friend starts to take advantages and liberties like bringing stray girls back to the house... it's time right there to let them loose onto the World. You would think boundaries and rules would have been discussed before the initial move-in, but I guess we would be mistaken. I'm willing to let a lot of things go in movies because they're supposed to suspend belief... but surely even movies aren't allowed to suspend stupidity, are they? The movie is fine... up until the 43rd minute. I know... it sounds silly that I would know the exact time stamp that this movie jumped over into the 'ok, I just can't take any more stupidity' factor... but that's exactly when it does. Watch it and tell me I'm wrong... because I don't know of one single person that would do what Mitch did... at exactly 43 minutes into this mess of a movie.

It's at that time that I took the rest of the film with a grain of salt... and I'm glad I did because it just kept getting sillier after that. It had a lot of promise, too -- but, having really dumb characters kind of kills a movie for me. I get that there are people out in the World that are not that bright... but having all of them in one movie together doesn't make any sense. Add to that some acting you would get from a local theater group and an unsatisfying ending.... and you wind up with: Final Grade: D More reviews at www.soveryterry.com
