A former small-town golden boy returns to his hometown with his new girlfriend, only to find that his onetime high-school sweetheart isn't willing to let go of the past. In the working-class town where Mike (Matt Long) grew up, football is everything. A few months after leaving for Northwestern University on a scholarship, Mike arrives back home for Christmas break with his pretty new girlfriend, Elizabeth (Jessica Stroup), in tow. Seeing Mike with another woman comes a quite a shock to the people around town; back in high school Mike and his girlfriend Shelby (Mischa Barton) were a fairly… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Neither trashy nor self-consciously funny enough to make its genre-trapped ludicrousness sing."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"An unmitigated B-movie that isn't thrilling enough or cheesy enough to make it worth the trip."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"This ripoff of "Misery" will make you miserable. Paul Chambers, CNN."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"Too lazy, preposterous and inane to even be considered as a guilty pleasure."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Rooted by a nice sense of place but, much like its real life namesake, Homecoming isn't age-appropriate for everyone -- maybe just those in high school, or barely removed. Others will likely find the familiarity more humdrum than effectively nostal"
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"As ineffectual police work and broken feet stack up, the silliness gets out of hand."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Homecoming is coldly efficient for what it is. But what it is is trash."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"...there is so little new or innovative about it that if you're a normal moviegoer, you've seen it all before."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The movie takes a premise that might have served as the basis of a weepy romantic drama and turns it into something very different, but no less insulting."
‑ Robert Levin, Critic's Notebook
"A silly, low-rent mash-up of Misery and Fatal Attraction, featuring neither the clever psychology of the former nor the layers of emasculation and consequence of the latter."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"Everything, including the ending, plays out exactly as you'd expect."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Nothing in the film is truly, laughably bad, but then -- unlike this year's Obsessed -- nothing is campily entertaining, either."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Rent Obsessed instead. That one you can at least laugh at."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"When is a movie remake not a movie remake? When the filmmakers involved know what they've made is so wretched they don't dare admit it. The most oblivious MTV viewer won't miss the blatant plagiarism."
‑ Diva Velez, TheDivaReview.com
"You can tell where this is all going, and the familiarity wouldn't be so bad if this cast could have some fun with the cliches. Alas, these CW stars pout and frown and yell, while lumbering and plodding through the Stephen King/Rob Reiner playbook."
‑ Alonso Duralde, MSNBC
