Insanely tacky dialogue ruined the film.
The premise of this film was more than adequate. The actors were adequate.
The body of writing was not. At all.
He stands there, his back faced to her. She runs a monologue about how jealous she was of his wife. Not only is the whole long-monologue-to-a- person's-back thing REALLY teenage-soap-opera corny, but every single one of her lines in the speech was forced. It sounded like she was reading a script, not saying it from her heart - and it wasn't the fault of the actress. I was actually impressed by her delivery, because the lines were just really, really bad.
And it's like that throughout every important part of this film.
When the brother is preaching to his communion of teenagers? YIKES. Just wow.
Screenwriter needs to go back to the drawing board with how he writes dialogue. He sucks. Bad.
Everything else about this film was alright. Actually, everything else was way above average for a small-budget film.
