The female lead I found grating and downright harsh to look at and Justin Long, though I don't mind him, looks rough too. His stoner guy character wasn't someone you would overly feel for, which is fine, since I couldn't stand her either, but you know, bit of a problem when a movie is a romantic drama and you don't care about the couple.
The ending was just fine for me, but I did feel like I wasted my time and 99c renting this.

Vanilla can't act (at all) and his lines are cringe-able, but like a car crash, you can't quite turn away, and his character does have a bratty charm to him. He sings 3 songs in this, so it is padded out with music. Depending on how you feel about Vanilla Ice and his music, that's either a good or bad thing. For me, good, I kind of liked it back in the day. So you have that 90's music video feel to it, atrocious 90's fashions and a rebel gets the good girl storyline all in what is widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made.
I don't think it's a worst movie by a long shot. Yes, Kristen Minter is the only one who can act, and I'm not entirely sure if Vanilla is in on that joke, or he really *does* think he is that cool, but it's engaging, amusing and pretty well filmed. I downloaded this in hd on iTunes and it looks pretty great for its age.
The scenes of Vanilla and Kat getting to know each other are quite sweet. Initially I didn't buy the attraction, but as it went on, I warmed to Kat and I could see how they actually were a good match.
Things get a little messy in the kidnapping sub plot. That kid can't act who plays the brother. Wow. Still, it's that kind of movie, so I can't hate on him either.
Overall, highly recommended to bad movie or 90's fans. It won't be for everyone, but if you fall into one of those categories, you will probably find something in this movie to enjoy.

It's a young teens movie, but I have enjoyed a lot of those over the years.
Hillary Duff always seemed sweet and she made some good movies over this decade.
I have to say, I have lost a bit of respect for Hillary personally since she started trying to out wild everyone else out there and trying too hard to shock. Maybe that's coloured how I see this, and I'm less likely now to excuse a less than perfect storyline. Or I am just too old for it, one or the other.
All pretty predictable. Jennifer Coolidge her too, but seen all that before too.

I liked the old lady on the bus who was on in between stories.
As to the short stories, the last one was the best - the guy stuck in an elevator. That actually was scary.
Next best the guy in the apartment with the crevices.
Spider woman was a bit kitschy and the tourist in Hollywood was forgettable.
I paid about $5 for my copy, and I'm happy with that. Not amazing, and inconsistent, but worth a look if you like Japanese horror.

I liked that it was set in a small town in the 80's. I loved that they still had an actual video store and the main character was a horror nut who made figures. Laura Prepon was excellent and the actress who played her mother - wow, whacked out, but so convincing!
The ending was a bit of a letdown, but overall I really enjoyed this.

I really didn't like the characters of either Jon or Barbara here (how did they make Scarlett look so harsh and unattractive while supposedly portraying her as the "hot" girl?!). Jon was just a meathead dumbass addicted to watching porn. Not much else to him.
At least there was some growth to his character by the end.
Julianne Moore is great and looks amazing for her age, but that was a hard relationship to swallow too.
I don't know... It was something a bit different and it wasn't predictable, so full marks there.
I'm glad I saw it. However, I don't think I would watch it again.

Actually, it was pretty good. The kid who plays young Nigel is excellent (this coming from me - I normally find child actors cloying and can't wait for the older cast to take over, so that's how good this kid is). I was sorry when "older" Nigel took over.
Interesting look at a young boys childhood in the 60's, the setting was great, really convincing as being that era.
It's only 90 minutes long, so strange that it feels long, yet is rushed. The older Nigel bits only total 30 minutes and barely tell any story
I loathed mrs Potter as well. Probably only at the very end I felt any sympathy. Nigel does seem cruel by then. Then again. Patronising hag smoking all over the place, I don't know I would have wanted to stick with her either. Then again, 60's, hard life, hard to judge.
This was okay.

I don't really watch a lot of this genre, but I was interested to see Abigail Breslin in a more recent role.
I'm not sure the story was all that great, but I liked the setting and it had kind of a True Blood feel to it.
I feel like the characters learned nothing by the end, and I am a bit over stories about distributing drugs for a living, but I cared enough to see how it all worked out.
Wouldn't watch it again, though.
