Not a 10 but definitely not a 1
Anyone rating this a 10 is obviously a friend(or member) of the production. Anyone rating it a 1 is obviously a hater. It's a pretty average low budget indie. The story is predictable, but so are most of these high school angst ridden comedies, so it's hard to criticize that. It's the same recipe we've all seen before. Matt Steele does a wonderful job as the main character, Ricky Redmond, which is the bright spot for this movie. The production value is meh, not great but not bad. The stunt casting, which is typical in low budget indies, was more indicative of the budget as they appeared to scrape the bottom of the D List barrel for small turns throughout. The dark spot for this movie is the so called "actor" playing Mr. Aubrey. The only thing I believe when he is on the screen is that I've never felt more sorry for a pair of pleated khakis. This is becoming more of a trend in indie films with executive producers paying for roles and fake press to perpetuate this ruse that they are professional actors. Most will tell you that this tactic is a great way to lose credibility for your movie and for what? So you can fool a handful of friends and family that don't know any better? Seems like an expensive hobby. Anyway, I think this is a safe option to drop a few bucks to stream for the family.
