OK, I have a theatre minor, and this is the first thing that struck me: college project. For that it gets at least an 8. For a movie - a 4 because there are so many worse. The whole thing could have been presented on a set. Overacted, weak scripted, a good "effort" for a grade in school. The story is pointless, just a character study by actors who hammer home their scripted characters hard enough to make sure the professor gets it. "Didja see how nutty I am?" Here, I'll do it again - bigger! Characters are introduced and just fade out without reason. It's basically a two person performance for the audience.
A jumble of loosely related characters spending some time in a huge mansion which, itself, had more character and could have been the subject of the movie. They all fade away without any real justification, leaving the two: an introverted, but smart kid who sees how crazy the other is, but he's attracted by the extroverted wild girl. Problem, I just don't believe his justification. I get more that he knows she's at least two screws loose, but can't walk (or run) away. There's no emotion behind his attraction. So many better out there.
