You know what happens in this movie? Nothing.
23 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's literally just watching nothing happen for an hour or two. The girl "friends" are all horrible to each other and the characters are completely uninteresting.

I pretty much only wrote this to say to stay away from this movie.. It was terrible.

And the worst bit of all was Rhys Coiro doing the most horrible "Australian" accent ever. As an Australian myself, he failed worse than abysmally. He sounded like a really odd Kiwi if anything. UGH. Cringeworthy. All of it.

Don't bother.
