"This movie was filmed in Hollywood in 2000, released in the Netherlands on DVD in 2001 under the title "Beyond the city limits", then finnaly released in the USA under the title "Rip it Off" in 2003. This is a very underrated film, it may have its flaws but I found the performances of the 3 female leads good enough to make it a reasonably good film, and viewers should take in to consideration the fact that this is only Gigi Gaston's second attempt at directing. I was glad to see Alyson Hannigan in a role that required more dramatic range than "Buffy" or "American Pie", I would love to see her in more roles like this but she seems to be mired in "Comedy" right now. The main flaw with this film is the poor editing, in watching this film I get the feeling that alot of good scenes were left on the cutting room floor. I would love to see a "Directors Cut" version of this film released with all these scenes restored."

"Never could have guesse that this movie would be so bad. COuld not reach the end of it, a very rare occasion!! The dialogues are so ludicrous, characters and acting obnoxious, I can't, I repeat, I can't understand how Alyson Hannigan starred this piece of... Shame on me for being such a BUFFY fan and having the bad habit of renting / buying anything remotely related to the cast of BUFFY...."
