Is there an actress in Hollywood that's hotter than Jennifer Lawrence is right now?
At 22 years old, she's not only been nominated for an Academy Award already, but she's the star of the crazy popular Hunger Games franchise, she's one of the X-Men, her role in Silver Linings Playbook is garnering critical acclaim, and she's just been named the World's Most Desirable Woman by Askmen.com.
What else is left for her to do?
Running around all sweaty in a tank top in a horror movie, that's what.
I'm not even joking when I say that J-Law spends most of this movie in a tank top, while in various states of wetness. Yes, that's a win for us.
|Nothing creepy about him.|
Ryan has secrets too. One of them is that his sister never ran away at all. No, he has her locked in a secret room in their hidden cellar, and he keeps her drugged and bound to her bed. No wonder everyone in town thinks he's creepy and hates him, because he'ss pretty creepy. Looks like a rat, too. Anywho, Elissa sees Ryan for who he really is, despite everyone else warning her against it, and befriends him. Let the dysfunctional teen romance begin!
|Also, let the "nothing good can come of this" snooping begin too.|
It doesn't take long before Elissa is breaking into houses and finding hidden cellars, secret bedrooms, and... I guess I should stop here so as not to spoil the rest of the movie. Really though, if you don't figure out what's going on by this point, movies may not be your thing anyway. I mean, they telegraph the twists in this thing, and they do it early. Reeeeal early.
|Can Ryan save her in time?|
J-Law filmed this movie between her Oscar nominated turn in Winter's Bone, and her meteoric star-making turn in The Hunger Games, which probably explains why she seems so much better than the material she's working with. I guess the bottom line is that she's way over qualified to be anywhere near a movie like this.
|That shirt should be nominated for worst supporting actor, because those things are flopping all over the place. Zing!|
It almost feels like they made a ton of cuts to the script and just went with the remains, figuring it would somehow work out alright. It didn't. For the most part, this movie is directionless and dull.
|Just put this one behind you, J-Law. Forget it even happened.|
|What a waste of good rape tonic.|
|Go ahead and use that imagination, pervs.|
Jennifer Lawrence's sweaty boobs are the only thing about this movie worth nothing. Sweat and boobs!
