Ensemble comedies featuring interlocking stories seem to be all the rage these days, but boy does it take serious talent to pull off the intricate plotting and careful structure of one of these films. Tom Zuber (whose prior film, Lansdown, was nothing special either) either doesn't have the talent or the patience for such a story.

Lansdown Review


Weak
This low-budget by-the-numbers thriller plays like an Amy Fisher docudrama, only without the B-list stars and even iffier acting.

Frankly I don't know how this ended up in my Netflix rental queue.
