Storyline

When Ruby Baker's parents are killed in a car accident, she and her brother, Rhett, must travel to Malibu, to live with Terrence and Erin Glass, their former neighbors. At first, all seems well. Ruby is making new friends at school and Rhett is getting more video games and flashy toys than he's ever had in his life. When Ruby speaks to her family's estate lawyer, he tells her that her parents have left Rhett and her $4 million. Suddenly, Ruby begins to notice odd behavior from Terry and Erin.

I wish the Film Projector would have been smashed into bits of Glass
14 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Awful, slow, boring, lacking plot, a painful experience and an utter waste of time. See it at the cheap theatre, anymore then a few bucks for this is hi-way robbery. Over an hour before anything happened that was remotely exciting. I can't express how repulsed I am by this movie. I liken it to Chinese water torture; I just wished it would end. I fear when the next poorly delivered line would come. Ruby is hot in her bikini. The only bright note.
