One of the worst movies of the decade
21 September 2008 | by axbSee all my reviews

Let me see- Bad acting, predictable plot, poor direction; what else could be bad? This would be a good effort if the average age of the participants was 12. Mediocre. Let's see what this film is about. It is about two guys living in a house with a woman who is just a roommate. We can guess, of course, that the woman will end up pairing with one of the men before the end. The woman has a friend who is uppity for no apparent reason- sorry correction- she has a boyfriend who is a high power agent in Hollywood. Correction- he is just a slime ball who preys on young females desperate to get into movie business. He is so crude that he wouldn't last in any business for more than 5 seconds, but for her girlfriend he is God. And one of the house-mates has a girlfriend who becomes a religious fanatic and a lesbian. Who thinks up such crap anyway? Actors mostly stand around stiffly to deliver their lines. Just because the actors are young and attractive does not make this relevant or interesting. This straight to DVD venture should have gone straight to nowhere.
