Lawdy! this was bad
18 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If I could give it zero I would. I stuck with it but skipped a lot of scenes b/c they clearly weren't going to be interesting. Nick was OK but really just played the part of Nick Jonas being Nick Jonas. Isabel was appalling. But I know her from her stint on Aussie TV and she was never gonna be good. The director chose her coz she's pretty I guess but she has no acting skills and her portrayal of the "alluring" neighbour was childish and awkward at best. The story itself is pretty pathetic too other than the bits they borrowed from elsewhere. But it's cobbled together into a boys own flick that only the most dedicated Nick Jonas or Isabel Lucas fans are going to get much out of. No tension or thrills or suspense. Just a teenage boys fantasy. Might as well go watch a frat boys sexy comedy romp or something. At least it will have some kind of humour in it. Seriously don't waste your time.
