I want to like this thriller
Two twenty-something bachelors from Goshen, NY - friends since grade school - set off to Malibu, by way of North Carolina. Enroute, they meet an enigmatic female, also going to Cali, who reveals that her father was abusive. Sharing burdens, one of the guys tells her that he regrets not being able to prevent a fatal fall by a classmate twelve years earlier. Enough about the intrigue. Regarding the professionalism of the production, let's just say that its later part is very different from its beginning. The start was low-key, laid back, and some questions and suspense evolved believably. But then the "only-in-the-movies" tendency took over and my impression became less favorable. Not negative enough, however, to suggest that you completely disregard this. To some, it may have some worth, but I think that, to most, its rating will be less than half.
