I didn't buy the attraction between the pair, which I guess is a major problem for this genre. I didn't really care if they got together or not. To me, they were both cheaters anyhow, so can't have been too madly in love.

Very hard story to describe, but basically two brothers are in love with their step sister (not related by blood, but still!). She has chosen one brother over the other, but she's a nasty piece of work and gets the other brother to kidnap her so she can extort money out of her boyfriend (for reasons never made clear, to me, just seemed a bored girl with a nasty streak). Unfortunately the other brother is in love with her too and her teasing and flirting goes too far and leads to another nasty situation.
Amazingly the story has a happy endings of types with unconditional love and forgiveness.
Too brief at 80 minutes to have any real impact and does not ring overly true, but I do try to watch all the japanese current day movies to help me learn the language, so I did enjoy this in a way.
It's definitely not one to rewatch or recommend, but for a tv free watch, no complaints.

Dianna Agron steals the show in her scenes, but she's not the main character and the other bits drag.

Was it just me, or should whoever did the wardrobe have been sacked? Cameron Diaz in particular looked awful in most of the outfits. It was like they were going for wealthy, middle aged frump, when she was meant to be a successful and attractive career woman. The young mistress also liked pretty dowdy and even dumpy in most of her outfits.
Well, probably says a lot about the story if I noticed the clothes so much.
The story is pretty basic - the wife and two mistresses (one of whom didn't realise the guy was married) find out about each other, and rather than get in a cat fight, they become friends and set out to punish the womaniser.
It should have been funnier than it was, though it had a few moments. The scene in the office with the blood and the smashed window felt like too much and not believable.
Glad I finally saw it, but was expecting it to be better.

Genuinely creepy and suspenseful boarding school story with a cast that can actually act.
The one flaw was the rushed ending, it felt too quick and easy, and at just 78 minutes, the movie was hardly out wearing it's welcome and could have stood a little more fleshing out.
Enjoyed this, though.

I could barely follow it, and I read and enjoyed the series when it first came out. Lots of dumb action and woefully miscast. I did not picture Dimitri like that at all, and as soon as someone I watched this with said that Rose was acting like Kat Dennings's 2 Broke girls character, Max, it was all I could hear. (And I like 2bg).
Really cringeably awful, but that's part of its charm. I don't think I… MoreReally cringeably awful, but that's part of its charm. I don't think I will be looking for a repeat anytime soon, but enjoyed it and added an extra star for introducing me to metal mouse in the end credits. Now there's a song to drive you crazy (needless to say I was all over it on iTunes by the time it finished playing)
