Could have been a good movie if it wasn't for the weird ending
3 March 2011 | by Emulator29See all my reviews

Let's make it straight i'm not 20 year old anymore since a long time ...but this "teen" (?) movie entertained me with joy :^) pretty chicks , good sex humor and lots of pretty guy & girl ..what do you want more ? ..mmmh..euh..well with a good scenario (i mean by that until the end ) i will have rated it 7 or 8 , but the 15 last Mn leave the audience with a strange taste of ? i don't know what . It makes you feel like they already plan a "Kaboom II" ? Or did they ran out of budget with a urgent need to finish it ?. Too bad it could have been very enjoyable film (thought more oriented for teens) and it's only the 2/3 of a good entertaining movie. I rated 6 ( the director should thanks all those beautiful bodies, faces and ..hmmm :^) )
