Editorial Reviews

Mike (Matt Long) is a small-town star athlete who is the first in his family to attend college, receiving a football scholarship to prestigious Northwestern University. When he returns home over Christmas break to the people he left behind - his family and friends - they are all surprised to see him with a new girlfriend, Elizabeth (Jessica Stroup), a pretty rich girl from Chicago. No one is more shocked than Mike's homecoming queen ex-girlfriend, Shelby (Mischa Barton), who immediately wants to be rid of Elizabeth and plots to take care of the problem. Our story takes many twists and turns as Shelby does everything it takes to get Mike back.

Some might say four stars is a bit generous for a film of this nature. But let me start off by saying that I'm a Mischa Barton fan, and that I also like this type of movie. This film is kind of a mix between "Swimfan" and "Misery." While certainly it is not as good as the latter, it is up there with other films of this nature.

Basically, Barton plays a jilted ex-girlfriend of a popular, very friendly and charismatic college athlete. The athlete returns home for his old high school's homecoming with his new girlfriend, and Barton does not approve. At first, she appears to accept the turn of events, and begins to befriend the new girlfriend. But her true intentions become revealed sooner rather than later - and you can guess what they are by simply viewing the cover art of the film.

Aside from the two female leads (Barton and Stroup), the acting is okay at best, which is typical for a b-movie. There is a decent amount of suspense and drama, but not really a whole lot of exciting twists and turns. The film moves along at a steady pace and it entertains, which is all a movie like this is intended to do. Barton is solid in the lead role, much moreso than in some of her other more recent films. Overall, if you're a fan of drama, campy violence, and obsessed lovers turned evil, than this will make the perfect rental for you. I would suggest it as a rental rather than a full purchase, though, because as you might have gathered, there's nothing here worth viewing on repeated occasions. 3.5 stars.

Plot: Barton's high school sweetheart visits his small home town with his new fiance, but Barton is certainly going to give everyone a run for their money in hopes of getting back together with her old beau.

1. The acting is meh, not really crappy but nothing stupendous
2. Whoever wrote this screenplay must have been really inspired by Stephen King's Misery because this movie is like the ugly stick beaten step-child to Misery
3. I call movies like this the "not another 'horror' movie" (instead of not another teen movie) because it's all the same predictable crap, and my favourite part is how Hollywood always casts some skinny little actress that manages to take beatings from men twice their size?? What are the male actors just as anorexic as their female co-stars and they're just getting padding and airbrushed muscles or something? What I am missing?!

Bottom line, don't expect anything new or amazing from this movie, I would only recommend watching this if there is NOTHING else. C-

A young freshman Mike (Matt Long) was a star quarterback in a small town called Mt. Bliss, and now he comes back to his home for a visit with a new girlfriend Elizabeth (Jessica Stroup). It is only natural that Shelby (Mischa Barton), who was dating Mike when they were in high school, is not very happy about that. To make matters more complicated, Mike says his relationship with Shelby is over while Shelby just doesn't think so.

On the night of their reunion something terrible happens to Elizabeth. That is when Shelby gets a chance to make her former boyfriend hers again. Shelby, obsessed with the idea, would never let this opportunity go.

Though pretty tight and well-acted, "Homecoming" is a disappointing thriller. The film borrows so many things from other films, and it is not a thrilling experience to watch all three principal characters doing stupid mistakes: Why leave your girlfriend there? Why leave the door open? Why not smash the window? Why not fight back?

Those who are looking for silly, over-the-top, campy movies should look elsewhere. The story is silly, but Mischa Barton's performance itself is fine and convincing. The acting of other actors is not bad, and the photography is decent. The script is clichéd, formulaic and built on incredible premise and coincidences, but the film itself is professionally done and somehow I was not bored. I also liked the fry pan scene. Nice way of using it.

The list of thrillers about obsessed female character may not be very long, but still is impressive - last year's "Obsessed," "Play Misty for Me" (Clint Eastwood's directorial debut), "The Crush" (starring Alicia Silverstone), "Single White Female," "Misery" and of course "Fatal Attraction." "Homecoming" is definitely not the best of this minor genre, and perhaps not the worst.

In this movie, Mike (Matt Long) and Elizabeth (Jessica Stroup) are about to get a homecoming they’ll never forget. When Mike’s ex-girlfriend and his new girlfriend clash, the aftereffects are horrifying. Not wanting to meet his parents when she is drunk, Elizabeth decides to stay in a motel for the night. After being dropped off at the hotel, she finds that she can’t get a room. With a dead phone and no way to call for help, she begins walking. After a flash of lights and blacking out on the road, Elizabeth wakes up in an unfamiliar room in an unfamiliar house. When Mike’s girlfriend goes missing, his ex-girlfriend, Shelby (Mischa Barton) begins manipulating him to win him back. Separated from her boyfriend and being kept weak so she can’t return to Mike, Elizabeth struggles not only to survive but also to escape, the not-so-innocent girl keeping her hostage.
