Ultra Stereotypes
16 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The high school students in this uppity "prestigious" prep school are a little far out, a little stereotypical for believability....unless I am totally out of touch (which could be).

The portrayal of every one of these rich kids as an ultra-snob, ultra-horny, ultra-cliquish, ultra-nerdy, ultra-mean, ultra-vindictive, etc., is stretching it. They don't show one - one - normal, nice kid. C'mon, man.

Meanwhile, one of the kids gets murdered in the bathroom and staggers out and dies in the hallway. What do the kids do? They just stand around and take pictures of the girl and a pool of blood. Cool, eh? Mac and his CSI team have to re-trace the final actions of the deceased, where she was and what she might have been doing, and if anyone else was with her. What they find out is shocking.

The most memorable performances come from Cassandra Jean as "Olivia Prescott" and Scout Taylor-Compton - as "Emmy Thomas."
