Despite Ben making it clear that he is in a committed relationship, Madison seduces him, the seduction to which he succumbs.

Hate me if you must, but I liked it.
7 September 2002 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

True it's not the best movie. And it is another fatal attraction with teens. But believe me it's a good movie. There are some flaws. But you should judge for yourself. It has good suspense, great performance by Erika Christianson. And Shiri is doing good on her carrer. It is another cheesy teen movie, but this is a good one. So over all, I'm not going to say this is the best movie, but it was worth $5.00. Like I said judge for yourself. Don't believe the bad reviews. Just go have fun. You won't regret it.
