I must be rating movies incorrectly to end up with trash like this in my recommendations! Nothing but a confused mish-mash of rap music, foul language, poorly scripted, poorly shot and a total waste of time. Well worth missing!
I had never even heard of this but decided to watch it because the idea of Anne Hathaway as the wild girl intrigued me.
And it's actually pretty good.
Examining the "wigga" phenomenon -... Read more spoiled white kids appropriating predominantly black street culture. In this case, with a hefty dose of Latin American culture in the mix.
Playing adults in a safe wealthy enclave, Alison (Hathaway) and Emily (Phillips) quickly discover they're not as worldly as they thought and things quickly get out of hand. Running home to Mummy and Daddy brings about a collision of both worlds with unforeseen consequences looming.
It's not a new story per se, but thanks to a strong performance from both Phillips, but especially Hathaway; and a script and director not afraid to go there without pulling punches, it's worth a look especially if you're interested in women on screen.
What's intended is reasonably obvious but no characters come across as being real and the posturing gets a bit silly and tiresome.One good scene is where both sides cock up their intended retribution... Read more on the other side. Watch Larry Clark's "Kids" (1995) for more realistically troubled teens.
Probably more a younger persons movie. Interesting story that you can follow and not really see happening but not too long and easy enough to watch.
Enjoyed this one, good story good acting and music. Gives a good fright and good character portrayals.
This film started off good , Anne played her part well. differenet from her usual films but the end was dumb, you don't know what happened ???????
Shows how high society girls and boys despite having everything still crave!! They crave for a basic life... simple things!!!
