I think is just a bad idea to watch, I don't recommended because you will get mad. you would feel lost like why? you would have a lot of questions...and also think why they didn't analyze the situation more. like they weren't smart to make the right choice.. I just don't recommend but in your own risk see it, and see what happens.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Not good enough

Upon the start of the movie it seemed to be promising, however, I unbeknownst to me I would soon be sadly dissatisfied and even angry watching something which had so much potential fall flat. Ms. Ricci should have past on this. Her character became so annoying and weak that I wanted her to die. The movie had a little suspense but, not good suspense to keep you on the edge. What a real disappointment. I hope a real good writer look at this movie and create something worth watching from it. Not another suspense movie with a naive stupid Caucasian girl who don't know how to think.
