Detective Huggins: We would love to believe you, Mr. Stevens. But you have to admit, your version of events does sound pretty bizarre. Don't you think?
Vincent Stevens: Look, it was a setup, okay? The whole thing was staged.

How did this get a high rating? Men. Doesn't matter if it was quality. It's every guys fantasy.
25 September 2015 | by (Boston MA) – See all my reviews

OMG. So many things wrong here. But not the plot. The plot was good . The execution of that plot? Bad. Super bad. First of all, the acting . The acting is sub par. It's really bad. Second thing , the characters. The characters here don't act like real people. They don't talk like real people. They are some guys wet dream about what the Frat boys and rich kids act like. Dialogue just isn't good here. It's super dumbed down with curse words strangely absent and precariously placed. OK let's get to the wives. Can we say issues? The person who wrote this movie has serious issues with women. Seems like he hasn't had too many either. The wives in this movie are so stereo typical , so snarly, so pathetic victim. The other women in this movie, the Super model , and the hooker of course. So the Hooker , OK ha ha and the doctor. So the doctor falls in love with her , when he has this super hot wife who is malignantly unhappy ( we never find out why) after he has sex with her one time? Oh jeez. OK so then, the super model who gets naked and utters lines like this " I like to play games, and I'm better at them than you." HAHAHAHAHHA. Jeez. I haven't said something like that since I was 21. It made me think whoever wrote this was about that age. OK so then the whole plot twist initially was good but then there was another plot twist that was just ridiculously dumb, and not realistic at all. The one guy who has the most self control the entire movie turns out to have the full on psychotic break? Whatever. Boring. And then the end scene. The hooker who stopped hooking and still drives a Mercedes , pulls up. She asked how's her friend doing and asked about his brother who is awaiting trial. OK, and all you three are not? Hmmmm. Interesting. I believe you all committed big time felonies when you messed with a crime scene , framed your best friend and then all plotted out the true murder ( conspiracy). But that's typical with this movie. This is great movie for stupid people as obviously most of us on here are. Still this is every normals guys fantasy here so they will enjoy it: Nothing further should be expected here .
