pretty good....Jacob's hott
21 March 2002 | by tiffysugargurlSee all my reviews

I happened to think this movie was pretty good even if some don't like it. It wasn't very mysterious because you can guess who done it from the beginning. Maybe its because I'm a teenager and think Jacob Tierney's hott but i liked the movie.
