The movie begins with a corny song over a laughable text message conversation so I knew right away this wasn't going to be something I would want to brag about seeing. The plot is about a complete psycho (AnnaLynne McCord) who discovers her boyfriend (Billy Zane) is cheating on her with her best friend (Viva Bianca). So she ties them both up and spends the bulk of the movie threatening and torturing them.
AnnaLynne McCord, with her horrible Southern accent and tacky hair extensions, offers up an extremely campy performance. You will undoubtedly spend most of the time viewing this laughing your ass off at her. She seems to especially enjoy using profanity like a child who has just discovered dirty words. She's really the whole show here. Whether you find anything to like about this movie depends entirely upon how much you enjoy her bad acting. Well, whether it's bad or whether it's "so brilliant that you just think it's bad" is up to you to decide. I know which side of that I come down on.
Billy Zane, once a respectable actor, has become moviedom's biggest garbage man. He keeps appearing in trash and getting paid for it. Viva Bianca is the only reason I checked this out in the first place. She looks amazing, even with that terrible wig on. Sadly, she plays the whole thing straight like she believes she's in Fatal Attraction or Misery. Don't get me wrong -- her acting isn't bad. It's fine, actually. It's just that opposite the scenery-chewing AnnaLynne McCord, she maybe should have tried to play the part a little more tongue-in-cheek. The script and direction did her no favors anyway. Director Mark Jones appears to have the same amount of talent as you would expect from your average Lifetime TV movie director. The story here is full of clichés and offers nothing to interest your average viewer, who has probably seen a version of this story done before and better. As a thriller, it's pretty weak. As an unintentional comedy, it's good for some laughs. Go into it with the right expectations and you might enjoy it.
