Storyline

In Venice, California, Kelley Tanner and Jonas Trumball are homeless teenagers who live on the beach and spend the day using drugs, drinking booze and shoplifting to survive. One day, Jonas overhears a conversation in a parking area between a woman named Evelyn and her housekeeper, and Evelyn tells that she will travel for one month with her husband David and she gives the alarm code to her servant. Jonas sees the chance to rob the house and brings Kelley with him. Kelley is in need of family love since she was a foster girl that left her foster house to live on the streets, and she spends the days watching the home videos of Evelyn, David, their son Michael, who has a poster of "The Kid" in his room, and their deceased daughter Stephanie. But Jonas is interested in robbing as much as possible to start a new life in Mexico. He meets a dangerous criminal to fence the jewelry and the Porsches of the family. But the family returns and Kelley and Jonas need to flee from the house. When ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Laughably Bad
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, that's nearly two hours I'll never get back. This movie is bad on so many levels. No time was taken to develop the characters, a preposterous plot, bad writing, it's just bad all around. Gabriella Wilde is the only watchable one in the film. While it features other rather talented actors, there's only so much you can do with such poor writing. I can't believe Richard Dreyfuss would lend his name to this awful movie.

As a side note: Could we please dispense with the clichéd British bad guy?? In this film especially, I felt I was watching Austen Powers at times, it was so ridiculous.
