And where was all the action? For a thriller, this film sure did spend a lot of time on the getting-to-know everyone scenario, and not enough on the actual moments of tension or suspense, all of which were conspicuously absent. Sure, I was never really bored during the flick, enjoyed the grandiose phoniness of the queen bitch and her make-up clad sprinkle girlfriends, and the performance put forth by Bobby aka Nathan Bexton. But other than the main trio, the rest of the cast was basically just a bunch of stale, one-dimensional characters, which under these circumstances didn't bother me. With the focus on the primary two girls, the cardboard cutout designation of the secondary players just didn't seem to matter that much to me. The film definitely does not need to be seen on the big screen, but might be enjoyed on a smaller level, if you're bored at home one night, looking for a little cheesy fake fun, and like the ol' crazy bitch on the loose type flicks, rent it and get a bonus shot of Susan Ward's breasts to boot (although more sex and definitely more skin would have appreciated by this film's teen target audience...what were they thinking?). But I guess that's why the lesbian under-and-overtones were tossed into the mix, eh?
