Utterly useless film. It doesn't say anything at all..
The only thing speaking in it's defense is the acting. All except the role by Lance, who seems to be just reading the script out loud. One might argue that his character is supposed to be that way, but it still comes out awkward.
And what's with that boom operator? They should have fired him at the first dangling of the microphone in front of the camera, but then there is the second and even more so obvious mistake. I can't think of *any* possible reason why a director willingly would do such a thing, it makes the film completely flat.
