I watched this because I didn't have anything to do, truth be told, but it was worth it.
I guess this would go in the category of a teen thriller. Basically, there is a party; a girl accuses a guy of rape. It was "she said - he said". No witnesses. The ultra tough guy alpha male football player decides to beat up on the accused who denies it. The accused dies in the process. The kids spend the rest of the movie thinking of how they're going to cover it up.
The movie has all your teen movie clichés: the tough guy football quarterback, the most popular girl in school, the young outcast girl who wants so bad to be in the in-crowd, the rebel misunderstood outcast guy from a broken home who doesn't want anything to do with anyone else but for some reason goes to the party anyway, the smart girl, and what would an American teen movie be without the one token black guy. Have I missed anything?
So a movie like this is going to have to rely on the like-ability of the cast to make it worth watching. One of the actors is Jenna Boy who as a child appeared in "Dickie Roberts Former Child Star" and the first traveling pants movie. She's extremely likable, and I really hope she's in a lot more projects in the future. That girl is alright. The actor who plays the token black guy was pretty cool. And the other female actresses were likable too, but not as much as Jenna Boyd. The guy who plays the tough guy alpha male quarterback could use some more time in the gym to make the character more realistic.
I wouldn't drive across town to see this movie. But it was okay.
