Did You Know?


The Volvo in the opening scene was left in front of the producer's house after filming. The aftermath was a "bloody mess". Someone passing by saw the car and assumed it was linked to a crime scene and called the police. The producer arrived home after a long day of shooting to a line up of police cars and flashing lights. See more »

Concur: worse than a film school project
3 June 2010 | by larabeesladySee all my reviews

What's so incredibly bad about this movie is that it isn't even good enough to look like a fresh-out-film-school project, with those clumsy attempts to be arty and make up for that final C minus. The editing is choppy and the story makes no sense. (It's clear the filmmaker just wanted to make a statement, and sadly, there's no enough substance in that statement to fill 105 minutes.) The acting - oh, who am I kidding, there's no acting going on, just line recitation. All the characters talk exactly the same, and worse, all have the same bad dialog of that immature, bitter guy in his early 30s whose friends have all moved on while he wonders why he's the one who's still single. In fact, the characters are SO unlikeable, so shallow, so crude, so sex-obsessed, so mean-spirited, and so stupid, including the detectives, that you're forced to root for the killer just to get it over with. And that's the moment when you KNOW you've wasted minutes of your life you'll never get back.
