| What Track Is This Train Running On...?
Writer directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul seem to want it both ways. With this movie they throw in all forms of crude low-life drug and sexual sensationalism while expecting us to look for something higher. Problem is it's never clear to the viewer just what audience they are aiming for - what they want to say - or where they are rightly heading. This is a pity because on one hand they are saying look at all the available crap you can indulge in (and they pile it on) but then attempt to introduce a halfway interesting awareness angle that's not always quite as convincing as it needs to be - leaving audiences a little confused and hanging in irritated limbo.

The story and its characters are weak and vulgar but we are supposed to find something lovable about them. Any quality moral insights are shrouded in dubious message type situations - IE: If spending quality time with your 14yr old son is reduced to talking about the merits of a threesome - then these folk need to take a very serious look at their understanding of responsible parenting!. It also looks as if they and the producers sold their souls to the 'cancer stick' companies - with heavy 40's style cigarette shot usage - each one glamorously 'set-up' for all their characters (no matter what age) add-nauseous. Give us a break - it took a long time to educate humanity and clean up the air but takes such a short time for commercial fools to kill it again.

What could have been a good try at worthy character observations ends up as a "let's make a film for everybody" that ends up pleasing next to no-one. What's left are reasonable intentions buffed to a trashy finish....

It's also a another case of the Hollywood promotions machine not knowing how to sell its product to the right audience.
