Another waste of our money and time
26 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This script never should have gotten the green light. The idea could have been used to write a good movie but, it wasn't. Instead it's slow and there's no real plot. A kid with a prep school scholarship and van gets used by the other kids at school so they can have sex with loose girls...in his van?

It's just ridiculous and doesn't happen. If the writers were more creative, they could have created a scenario where this made sense but they completely failed. The characters don't make up for the failure in story nor do the performances of some rather goofy looking actors.

In reality, these RICH 16+ year olds would have a party house somewhere be it that of a young adult that sells them drugs or that of a kid with loose parents that don't discipline him/her. The one thing kids don't do today is struggle to find places to have sex! This is hands down, the most tragic, casual sex generation modern society has ever produced. Teens today aren't even all that concerned with who they have sex with let alone where. Sharing a shag wagon is something you're more likely to see in the suburbs where it's not quite poverty stricken but not quite middle class and even then, it's not so likely considering the values of this culture.

It's a dud and I can't recommend it for any reason at all. Nothing happens, no nudity, no comedy, no good vs bad conflict and resolution. Even the story between the orphaned brothers is flat and uninteresting. This movie needed much better writing and a more talented cast.
