  • Summary: All her life Leigh Ann Watson (Holmes) has done the right thing. Her only ticket out of town is the one scholarship that goes to her school's top student.

    A dark, biting comedy-- funny, smart and full of unpredictable twist and turns.
  2. Williamson's screenplay doesn't match the cleverness of his conceit; it lacks the requisite archness and wit.

    Mirren is about the only reason this slow-moving revenge tale tingles at all.
  4. Reviewed by: Richard Corliss

    It's too empty to applaud, too insignificant to deplore.
  5. Williamson deals mostly in cliches, as if high schoolers weren't smart enough to appreciate anything subtler.
  6. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey

    A pat, hollow exercises with few tricks (or treats) up its sleeve.
  7. One of the worst movies released this year.
