Your College Bound Kid Needs to Watch This
18 March 2017 | by natosha-morrisSee all my reviews

Good movie..Shows what happens when your self worth is so low that you think you have to pay for others to humiliate you for a fake friendship. This is how you brainwash people and create narcissistic sheep that keep you from advancing on the job..Have your college age kids watch this.
