Movie Reviews

Stupid, Nasty, Homophobic, Offensive! Horrible Movie.
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Deserves no stars! The cover gives off a Cruel Intentions/Teens sex out of control look but its really a stupid ,pathetic murder motive jelousey movie thats homophobic and just plain offensive on so many levels. Avoid this garbage at all coasts. Shame on Nick Stahl!"
This is, by far, the WORST movie I've ever seen.

"This movie deserves no stars.I just finished watching this movie about five minutes ago, and couldn't feel anymore foolish for renting it. I can't believe I spent my money and time watching this movie. I wish I could go back to the video store and return in.As far as the story goes...there is no story. I mean, I verbally announced every scene of this movie before it happened. It was all so obvious. There was nothing original about this at all. Not only was it not innovative, but it was very predictable.The acting was terrible. I honestly can't tell if it was the acting that was so bad or the script. I think it's a heavy mixture of both.There was no direction at all. It's like they gave the actors this lame script and told them to go with it. It looked like it could have been filmed in one day. Editing and all. It was pathetic and a disservice to all who sat through it.The camera angles were really bad. I mean bad. It was somewhat distracting as well.Overall, this was the worst movie I've ever seen. I can't believe I picked this up. I have no clue what I was thinking. I guess I thought a Nick Stahl and Eddie Kaye Thomas movie couldn't steer me wrong, but I really had that wrong. I'm sure all of the actors that participated in it would rather forget that they did.I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone at all.fatti"

"This very well may be one of the top 5 worst films I have ever seen. The reason I gave it leeway with 3 stars is because Amber Benson is in it. I love that woman, and I think she's a fantastic actor. Beyond her portrayal of a drunk, stumbling college girl (she even gets labeled a "lush", that was a funny scene), this movie has nothing. The plot-6 college friends (3 boys, 3 girls) play a game (if you want to call it a game) where they each get a card and answer the question written on it. It's just a series of questions about sexual and social taboos (hence the title! See its all coming together). A year later on New Years Eve they come together once again for a reunion. From there we witness the group get picked off one by one (is there any other way?). The plot itself is boring and not all that original. The greatest problem of the film however is that its so predictable! With each new shot you know exactly what is coming. The ending I suppose is amusing, but it's also very predictable. The actors were terrible (except Mizz Benson), even Eddie Kay Thomas does a bad job. His character is basically Finch from American Pie, only he's a jerk-off and a rapist! So unless you're a fan of one of the cast members I wouldnt recommend seeing this movie."
No surprises in this one

"Anyone who paid attention to the clues given during the movie could solve this "mystery" way before they wanted to enlighten us. This movie was supposed to be an intelligent thriller, but it isn't much more than a slasher movie in disguise.
Still, it's a fun watch if you're having a horror movie bash."
