Absolutely awful B movie
25 October 2016 | by tomparisnycSee all my reviews

I love James Franco, but have no idea why he took on a ridiculously unimportant story of some gay teen porn star who is involved in some silly murder that makes no sense.

Acting was ghastly of the entire cast, including poor Christian Slater and James Franco is only screaming f***, f***, f***! Horrible!

The screenwriter must have been asleep or on crack, as there is really not a single dialogue in this movie that is funny or clever.

What a waste of time and money!

Save yourself! And to all gays, this is a joke of a movie, guys! Do yourself a favor and boycott this awful movie!
