I give this **** four Stars
I didn't like any of the characters in this movie. Shawn Hatsoy plays the main character (David) who is a ginger loser. He is awkward around girls and is obsessed with Jenny, a free spirit (borderline slut) who sees him as a friend and apparently the only girl who will give him the time of day in all of the college kingdom. He tries to win her over by writing poetry, which isn't half bad until he reads it aloud. She meets David's friend Alan (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) who asks her out and poses nude for her (the only nudity in this movie is sausage) which leads to a sexual encounter. They become lovers and David feels rejected and hurt. Alan is the third psycho in this group as he pledges his love for Jenny while he bangs a blonde. None of the characters were nice people and could all be described as losers. I was most sad that they didn't all die. Yes, Rachel Leigh Cook runs around in a pair of cute panties in the beginning and that is as good as the movie gets.
Rachael Leigh Cook's character is torn between her male best friend who has feelings for her, and her boyfriend who is slightly off the rails. We begin with the best friend in hospital and he is being questioned by a detective played by Lorraine Bracco. Via the bestfriend's flashbacks which may or may not be true, the detective has to piece together what happened between the girl, the best friend and the boyfriend.
The quality of filming isn't too bad in itself but there just isn't enough substance to the story. I suggest you buy "Tangled" if you are a Rachael Leigh Cook fan, but if not, you're not gonna exactly be heartbroken if you don't have this on your DVD shelf.
I'm not saying it's terrible- it just could have been so much better.
It is about a love-triangle that got tangled -- David (Shawn Hatsey), Alan (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) and Jenny (Rachel Leigh Cook), all juniors at a college. Jenny and David are seeing each other when Alan, handsome and reckless, steps into their college life out of the blue. Quiet boy David (who studies poetry) and Alan were in fact friends when much younger, but because of some incidents in the past, their relations was an awkward one. And because of Jenny's ambiguous attitudes to Alan, and Alan's seductive attitudes to Jenny, things get more complicated, and more dangerous.
That's what the opening of the film implies, by the choppy shots of flashbacks. The film follows the memories of David, who, now hospitalized after some (still unknown) terrible accident, recounts his story before the investigator Lorraine Bracco. So, here, the film also tries to give a twist to the otherwise mundane story, using flashbacks that slowly reveals the key events in the past.
The original intention is good, and there is a decent film buried behind the film (which I am afraid no one in English-speaking coutries have seen in theater). There are some good shots that suggest the emotional tense between the characters. And Rachel Leigh Cook is as sweet as before, and sexy at times.
But, unbelievably, the film takes almost one hour to explain the relations between the three, which is not particularly original.Read more ›
I can definately reccommend this as a nice addition to any DVD collection.
