| pure hypocrisy
This is supposed to be a movie that will show and condemn the exploitation of teens on the web today. It succeeds on some levels, but mostly in the way those Christian or government anti-drug campaigns work e.g. without much subtlety and with forced drama and pathetics.

What angered me the most is the pure hypocrisy of this movie - whoever made this has never turned on MTV or opened a teen magazine in his/her life. Those things regularly have pictures of teens in far more lascivious poses than what the movie tries to sell as ultra-perverse yet it is considered quite normal in our society - better yet, teen models from those magazines are probably the most popular kids in their schools, unlike the movie protagonist who is mocked and laughed upon - plot device that really got a few things wrong with todays teen mentality.

Furthermorem the movie chose the dreaded cheesy approach - a cliché egomaniac web-site owner as the antagonist and a cheap thriller side-plot to keep the audience from sleeping. Oh, and if this movie is really so much against teen exploitation, than there is really too much of that running-in-bra-and-panties schtick.

On the other hand, the actors are all on-par (except Mimi Rogers with her one-facial-expression-fits-all acting ability), the movie doesn't drag too long and the issue it addresses should be addressed. But really in a more realistic and less hypocritical manner.
