In the opening scenes of the film, Josh and Dena are shown at Lake of the Woods, which is in southern Oregon. Later in the film, when they are heading to the lake with the boat, they mention that they will have to put in "upstream at Lake of the Woods". The following morning, Josh asks what is going on as people are reading the news, and it is said that "Someone blew up Green Peter Dam last night", and later when Josh is at the library, the news article mentions Green Peter Dam, and the Santiam River, which Green Peter Dam impounds to form Green Peter Lake. Green Peter Dam is outside of Sweet Home, and is over 100 miles from Lake of the Woods. See more »

This review is hard for me to do because it requires 10 lines and this movie was so slow and plot less that it is hard to think of 10 lines to say about it. This movie had very little dialogue and a lot of long silent pauses in this movie. Most of the time the viewer is left guessing what they are doing. The relationship between the three characters is vague and the reason they are doing what they are doing is vague, too. The acting might have been good with strong actors but they had very few lines and a very weak plot. It moved VERY slow. This was not the type of movie you would expect from Dakota Fanning and Jesse Eisenburg. Had they not been in this movie it wouldn't have even been watchable because we (the viewer) are forced to watch their zombie facial expressions throughout the whole movie. Their facial expressions often substituted for dialogue. The whole movie could be summed up that they did something bad and then felt bad about it. The end seemed like they just ran out of film or ideas and stopped.
