19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot is contrived and even the "ethnic" elements seem formulaic, as if some white kid from the suburbs thought it up. "Good girl from dysfunctional family gets involved with a bad crowd"--a classic, but this presentation is just too tame. The characters are not very plausible, and even the "victim" characters are unsympathetic, which really deflates the melodramatic resolution of the movie. The soundtrack is wretched. That said, while there is nothing very interesting going on in this movie, it's not that unpleasant to watch. The story develops smoothly, the characters go through the expected motions, the production is good enough: it's uninspired, not stupid. Or maybe I just have a fetish for girls riding bicycles.
