He's enjoying partying with them, losing his virginity and having a good time - until something goes horribly wrong.
I'm a huge Justin Timberlake fan so when this movie came out, I totally wanted to see it. I never went and saw it in the theaters but I did finally watch it after it had been out for all of like what? Two years? LOL...anyway, I'm so very glad that I didn't watch this movie in the theaters. I'm so glad that I waited until I had absolutely nothing else to watch and caught this one On Demand because I hated this movie.
Words cannot explain how much I hated this movie. It was vulgar, stupid and though the actors did a phenomenal job of making me hate them, I still hated this movie. This movie was based on a true story? That frickin' sucks. I wasn't proud of Justin's accomplishment of filming this movie, lifelong fan that I am.
I was so disgusted with myself after I watched the entire movie that I had to turn the tv off, the acting and the movie itself did it's job. It thoroughly pissed me off and it thoroughly made me wish bad things to happen to the real people who did this.
My grade is based on how much I liked the movie, I hated it so it gets a D. Justin Timberlake saved it from getting an F and fair or not, that's what I'm giving this movie, LOL.
