Three girls and their hostage travel to the south of France
5 September 2005 | by info-4777See all my reviews

Three 'wild' girls and their hostage travel to the south of France in his stolen car. This is a typical example of an uninspired story, about characters that are surface only. There is no real plot development and the whole movie is ridden with road movie cliché's. The story lines is full of gaps, dialogs are hilariously bad acted and the ending is totally unconvincing.

If you liked Costa, you might enjoy this for the actors (and special guests Georgina's "Harry's"), but not even the supposedly great surroundings will satisfy the viewer enough to take this one even a bit seriously.
