I think I made it about fifteen minutes into this movie. The moment that shut me down was the extremely lame, evil drug dealer. Did the writer ever travel to any places with drug dealers or street people? The only reason I rented it was because, somehow, a trailer for the short film starring Justin Whalin was on another video I had seen. I was extremely confused as to why they didn't credit Whalin on the box and picked it up. Don't bother with this.
I agree that the positive comments on this site are probably from people involved in producing this crap.
