Overwritten, poorly cast rom-com
The central gimmick of this Kaylani Lei feature for Wicked isn't bad, but the execution by director DCypher is awful.
He starts off by totally miscasting the male lead opposite Kaylani, hiring Stormy Daniels' husband Brendon Miller - unattractive and merely annoying throughout.
Title is based on a rule of thumb that dictates one shouldn't contact a new, potential girlfriend for 3 days after acquiring her phone number -something of a "playing hard to get" notion.
Lei has just dumped Miller, while still living with him in a roommate situation, and when he gets the all-important digits from beautiful Sam Ryan he decides to violate the rule and start texting her. His buddies Kris Slater and Bill Bailey decide to prank him by switching numbers on his phone, and most of the movie consists of them concocting misleading texts which make him think Sam is crazy in love with him.
DCypher runs this premise into the ground, making the movie seem far longer than its already padded-with-sex running time would suggest. Lei looks great, but is overwhelmed by this shaggy-dog of a story line.
