In one scene, while Ryan and Elissa are kissing in his house, the girl in the basement hears them through a baby monitor, and decides to escape as a result. However, it doesn't make sense for Ryan to have set up the baby monitor so that only the girl in the basement can hear him, while he cannot hear her. It would make more sense for the two parts of the baby monitor to be switched so that he can hear her. See more »
I want you Elissa... but I need Carrie Anne.

If you've never seen a movie before then this is probably tolerable. Its always nice to see Elisabeth Shue. Jennifer Lawrence is definitely a leading lady of the future but this does no-one associated with it any favours.
Its just too clichéd, too predictable to be of any entertainment value.
In fairness I didn't totally hate it, but it wasn't involving. Its not a movie that you'll ever watch again or buy the DVD/ BR.
This is no fault of the cast but the script which means that you'll know how the movie ends before it is even half over.
Unless you're a rabid Lawrence fan then I wouldn't bother with this until there is a Netflix or DVD release.
