The main character, Jen, played by Piper Perabo, is a typical manipulative and spoiled pretty girl, who meets with a freak accident and is then wheelchair-bound, not able to use her legs and one of her arms. The same people who were hot for her, her old boyfriend, her current girlfriend, and a flirty cop (Seth Myers, Mary Beth Burns, and Nick Scotto, respectively) just aren't the same and begin to avoid her.
With the death of her father (that she thinks she could have prevented had she been 'whole',)Jen resolves to get better and does. Once healthy again, Jen's life only seems to get worse. All her troubles come to a head in a bizarre chain of events that finds her mother dead (suicide) and her girlfriend involved in a killing. This seems to push Jen over the edge and she makes a fatal (or was it?) decision, and the movie ends.
We learn throughout the picture that Jen herself is a little kookie. And she refuses to see a shrink. So when trouble comes, she is unable to handle it. No line of the plot went anywhere positive, but to lead a puzzling and convoluted ending that leaves open to question what actually occurred.
This should have been a tour-de-force for Piper Perabo, who is in virtually every scene. Perabo does do a credible job, but has no material to work with here. The five stars are for Perabo's performance. It will not be recognized, though, because the movie is just uninspiring.
