Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The young women in Point Pleasant are portrayed as almost animalistic, unable to control natural emotions and sort out teenage insecurities. What seem like average teen problems -- abandonment, envy, distrust, love -- are all over-dramatized because a "devil" has moved in to town.

Teens will likely prove to be too smart for the ridiculous plot line and lack of character that Point Pleasant captures. It's a campy, obvious, and desperate attempt to reincarnate shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or The OC, and an unsuccessful one at that. Fortunately for parents, there aren't even enough dramatic elements to grip teens into yet another soap.
