Consensus: A dull, soapy potboiler that lacks the energy to qualify as a guilty pleasure, The In Crowd is undone by slow pacing, poor acting, and a stunning lack of originality.

Late-night Cinemax fare inexplicably granted a theatrical release.

Dark and twisted, with sexually suggestive undercurrents, this one's as safe to miss as a sunburn by the club poolside.

Brittany is so obviously wicked, from the first glimpse we get of her, that there's nowhere for Ward to take her, except over the top.

The In Crowd isn't a movie, it's Gorgonzola, a crumbly summertime stinker veined with pop-cultural fungus.

The movie is billed as an erotic thriller, but it's not very erotic, nor is it really all that thrilling. It's just there, a languid, workmanlike time-waster that's the multiplex equivalent of sitting around the country club pool and working on your tan.

The press release makes a "special request" to not reveal the ending. They didn't need to worry. Anyone over PG-13 age is going to know exactly where this movie is going long before it gets there.

The acting is universally abysmal, although so are all the lines of dialogue. So I can't entirely blame the cast members.
