not really sure how to feel
1 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I decided to give this movie a shot because I watch Baby Daddy (which Chelsea Kane is on) and thought Nolan Funk was quite hilarious as Hunter on Glee. I have never ever put any type of theatrical high standard for lifetime movies, but this is still pretty average on the totem pole. Without giving anyway any spoilers, lets just say that there are quite a few plot holes and inconsistencies which will have you going "really?" (not unlike other lifetime movies, though, but still). I could tell that the actors were trying really hard to commit to their roles but the dialogue (especially at points that were supposed to be creepy and disturbing) was actually quite comical sometimes. Luckily it wasn't completely horrible and I was able to make it through the entire thing.

It's like they were trying to reach a younger crowd with the random mentions of former Disney/nick teen pop stars...miley, selena, and "Ari" (lol what??) but then the rest of the movie was pretty adult themed, not like R rated but if i had a teenager I probably would watch this first before letting them watch it. i couldn't help but wonder if they were taking a dig at the stereotypical "child star grows up" story but i suppose that's for another thread.

I give it 5 stars for not being great, but not being truly terrible either. The plot is pretty uninspired, the script lets down the actors and by the time the movie was over i wasn't even really invested in any of the characters to care about their fates....but again, this is a lifetime movie, so you should already know what you're getting into.
