I saw this one in a nearly empty movie theater. It was me in the third row and two 11 or 12 year old girls three rows behind me. They said "Hey." I said "Hey" back. We laughed that we were the only ones there and then the movie started. No more laughter.

I was kind of hoping for a slightly sleazy thriller. But it was PG-13. I should have known better. So the outsider wants to be an insider with the pretty rich kids. The story was not interesting but the women were hot. I perked up during one scene on a boat when two of the "In Crowd" girls started to make moves on each other. The two little girls behind me started squirming in their seats and were yelling "Gross!". I was howling for more action. Unfortunately the PG-13 got in the way and spoiled the fun. Dang.

This movie was all tease. It should have gone straight to cable, not a movie theater. For a late night cable flick, I probably would have watched it until I fell asleep. Instead I snoozed in the movie theater until I was the only one left. zzzzzzzzzz..

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 teasing in crowd girls Am I in?
