I agree that it must be the filmmakers family and friends leaving the positive comments. The story line and acting are both abhorrent, and it has a string of poor choices, inconsistencies and wooden moments.
It starts out seeming as if it may be promising but then the story line just gets worse and the believability evaporates.
i would have enjoyed this film if they hadn't been so sloppy on the story, wooden on the dialogue, predictable in the soundtrack....
OK, I would have enjoyed it better if it had been a better movie.
