Just don't watch this. 8th grade level writing, cringe worthy acting and just plain awkward directing. I've never written a review but I just can't hold back on this one and I don't even know that you need 10 lines of texts for a review. None of the nude scenes in this movie makes any sense or are necessary. The actors have zero chemistry with each other. The directing is just awful. I don't know the director's background but whatever the school he went to, don't go there. They cast a porn star to be one of the main roles, but unlike a few others that had been on the "big screen" before, there was not a single moment that you would think "oh damn he can actually do more than fk on camera". This movie is neither inspiring nor entertaining. There is literally no reason to watch this.
