Low budget? Yes! Marginal acting? Yes!

But the scenes are so well edited that just as you start to get a little bored with one scene it changes to keep you watching - in my opinion. Not the best acting nor the greatest script but Trevor St. John David portrayal as Kyle gets you wondering whats going on in his head in his obsession with Amber. Amy Vorpahl as Amber creates a character that is somewhere between charming and psychologically damaged as she uses Kyle for her own self interest and her inability to give back. Kyle suffers and she really doesn't care.

The psychiatrist scenes are all about Kyle and his refusal to look inward to understand why Amber has such a hold upon him and theses scenes certainly help the story move along to the next episode in Kyles relationship with Amber. This movie is listed as a comedy drama but I see it as just a light drama as the laughs are few.

If you are into looking into dysfunctional relationships between supposed 'lovers' this story will keep you interested.
