Made it to minute 26
I knew what was coming. I wasn't interested. And how was I supposed to believe anything about the story after the first scene? It seemed gratuitous. I didn't want to hang in to find out how it fit in or if it fit in. As the minutes went by it just seemed like someone's fantasy of what a nasty girl must be like.
