This movie was a constant battle to decide whether to stay or persevere, and that was just within myself. My companion wanted to leave almost half an hour into the film, but we stayed, as there was enough to suggest entertainment to come. Whether it did or not , really depended on your point of view. I felt there was a distinct homage to The Basketball Diaries, with the attendant shocking revelations about the drug sub culture, but just like that movie, there were also plot lines that were meaningless and drug references that only ex addicts would fully appreciate.
In the end a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 4% is probably enough of a condemnation. Plus the fact that if I ever wanted to see the movie, I could probably watch the trailer below and save myself the 2 hours.
