Ok, so this movie is absolutely horrendous. As much I think Dakota Fanning is hilariously adorable here, the movie otherwise is pretty much garbage. Brittany Murphy, as much as I like her in other films, is horrible here. The script isOk, so this movie is absolutely horrendous. As much I think Dakota Fanning is hilariously adorable here, the movie otherwise is pretty much garbage. Brittany Murphy, as much as I like her in other films, is horrible here. The script is atrocious and the story is a joke...for the first half of the movie. The second half is oddly touching and very moving at times, which almost rescues it, but then you are reminded of just how horrible and despicable all the characters are throughout the entire movie and return to hating this one. Now, again, I will say again that I did enjoy the second half and that it does pick up a bit and that Fanning is good here, but that does little to save this one from crashing head first into a brick wall.

It's a terrible movie, but it would have been so much better if it weren't for two things, the characters, and character development. All the characters are easy to hate, with unfunny lines, poorly acted "emotional scenes" and, It's a terrible movie, but it would have been so much better if it weren't for two things, the characters, and character development. All the characters are easy to hate, with unfunny lines, poorly acted "emotional scenes" and, well, quite frankly they're wooden. However, it would have been better if the characters had gone from dicks and sluts to nice guys and good people, or if you got the hint that any of them had learned something from Ray or Molly, but you don't, which is the worst part of an otherwise bad movie.
