3 of 10. Outside of showing everyone how to market a tedious teen drama, something only of interest to producers and film ad agencies, there's little outside of the soundtrack and cinematography to make this worth the time. Maybe it could work as a music video where the writer/director isn't expected to do anything beyond providing some eye-candy to go with the music.
Story: Irish teens break into some rich house where the owners seem to be on an extended vacation. At this point comes a lame attempt to do an updated Kids (1995) in Ireland. There's an attempt to put too much drama into everything but it all reduces to teen peer games without any insight. As a potential lesson to parents and a film for parents to watch, it might work. For everyone else, this version of watching naughty children playing with the toys of the rich is neither new nor significant.
