Hour and a half of my life I'm never getting back...
12 May 2015 | by Laurie GambleSee all my reviews

This film has a very Made For TV Movie vibe. The script is stilted and the characters are grossly underdeveloped.

The main character, Lucas, is supposed to be unique and quirky but he just comes off like a little asshole. His parents are assholes too. The people that made this movie are assholes.

The character of Chris, played by Tim Meadows was contrived at best. I really don't know what they were trying to do with him but the character and script did a great disservice to a solid actor.

I suppose a redeeming factor for this film would be the little nerd girl. Her minor role brings a breath of fresh air to an otherwise stale cast.

Acceptable for Lifetime Television for Women. Epic Fail as a blockbuster.
