In the last helicopter scene you can see Megan getting in the left side of the helicopter. However, helicopter pilots should always fly from the right seat. It is possible to fly in the left seat, but they are supposed to fly in the right seat. See more »
Ideas that don't meet their potential are the bete noire of film reviews. In theory every movie that has ever been made could potentially have benefited from one more rewrite, one more tweak, before going before the cameras.
And then there is this film. Arguably the "poster child" for scripts that weren't quite ready for primetime. The irony is that the idea is rock-solid; and, even more ironic, something Hollywood (A-List Hollywood, not backlot Hollywood) had seemingly missed.
I am betting the logline for this was something like "Trained teen female killer ready for anything ... except High School," or something close.
Totally agree with earlier reviewers that every possible chance for getting a scene right was wrecked or ruined in favor of bad dialog and shaky acting.
Clichés abound. They actually leap off the screen and bang you on your head to make sure you get the "joke" (like the substitute mom whose every piece of advice sounds oddly like an apology for something she herself did when she was young ... or the father who tries so hard to talk his son that he sounds like an SNL skit).
Could have been a contender. Really.
