Sarah F. (Ferdy63) from DALTON, GA
Reviewed on 11/4/2008...
Story about a group of teenagers in a dead end desert town that ends up being quaranantined due to a toxic spill - good performances from young Christina Ricci, Casey Affleck and Kate Hudson. The town's big claim to fame is the World's Largest Ice Cream Cone and a half finished water park (in the desert). When a tanker truck crashes and the driver mysteriously dies, the town is quarantined trapping Kate Hudson and her father with the locals for a couple of days. Casey Affleck plays an ATV racer who's in love with Christina Ricci, an explosives fanatic who also happens to be the sheriff's daughter. Quirky characters, teen angst, young love and town secrets make for an interesting movie.

Superb Acting, Directing, and Writing
(5 out of 5 stars)

"More great stuff from Morgan J. Freeman. As a person who watched this film for the first time at SXSW '99 my excitment was high. I had seen Huricane Streets and was prepared for anything. This film is not only funny, but also deeply moving. If you are the type of guy that screams independant, this film is for you. I was on the edge of my seat. Please trust me, It's well worth your time and dollars!"
Deserted with a bunch of teens and a star!

"This movie was not as good as i thought. I think the story is solid but could have more to it. The cast is excellent and each of the characters have their own personalities and goals in life, which add to the way the story turns out. The acting is great - i just think more of a story would have made a more entertaining movie. But overall a good movie I would watch again!!"
What Indie is meant to be!

"When was the last time you watched a movie and could not predict the next scene? That is exactly why you should buy this movie! I am an Indie filmmmaker and know the process well. If you ever wanted to watch a movie and find out what happens this is for you! Christinna Ricci is awsome as usually. So is all the others in the film. How many movies have you seen where 10 minutes into it you know the ending? To many to name for me. That is why I am not going to refer what happens in the movie, I just say if you want to see a new movie, not told told another way, please see this movie and you WILL add it to your collection. I was so glad to be able to watch something original and this meets all expectations. One to have that you can watch and share with others!"
