Freddie Prinze Jr. kind of reminds me of that one retarded kid you had in class, y'know the one who would eat whatever you told him to, or the one who always shit his pants on the first day of school and then blame it on someone else.Unfortunately watching Freddie Prinze Jr. take a shit isn't as funny as you would assume. At first the mental picture is pretty amusing, but once you see it actually realized, well it's not a good thing.
Now let's get one thing straight. I actually dig Freddie Prinze Jr. I make no apologies about this one, he's a top notch actor with all the charm and charisma of a clubbed seal at Mardi Gras.
Not only that, but this movie was directed by Mark Waters who also did the HOUSE OF YES, which is a great fucking movie. Just as George Huang followed up SWIMMING WITH SHARKS (another fanfuckingtastic flick) with the everloving TROJAN WARS, Mark Waters follows up with this sophomoric piece of S-H-I-T.
What did I expect you might ask? Well, I wasn't sure. On the surface this looked as if it would be a huge travesty, which it was. But then I thought, but the dude who did HOUSE OF YES did it. It's just bizarre, because this movie seems as if a blind amputee five year old directed it. Actually scratch that, I think a movie directed by a blind amputee five year old would probably turn out to be a master piece.
Anyway, I don't really feel like rehashing the plot, it's a no brainer anyhow. Instead, I'll just make a list of what sucked about this movie.
So then, absolutely nothing redeeming about this movie whatsoever. Don't even think about this one.Even if you're a Freddie Prinze Jr. fan such as myself, skip this one. Go rent SHE'S ALL THAT, or I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. Or DELIVERANCE, that's a good uplifting, teenage romantic comedy.
