Perfect sisters, but not the perfect crime.

This is based on true events that took place in Canada. Some called the actual case "The Bath Tub Girls". Sandra(Abigail Breslin) and Beth(Georgie Henley)are sisters perplexed with being on the movie again. Their alcoholic mother Linda(Mira Sorvino)packs up with daughters and young son in tow after each break up with an abusive boyfriend. It finally gets just too much to take. Sandra is so into herself, as if the world rotates around her. She craves attention. On the other hand, Beth is goth trendy and more in tune with reality. The perfect sisters dream of a perfect life; but how can that be with their mother dragging them down. Then comes the thought, what if they no longer had their mother; what would it take to get rid of her? The two girls manage to cover up the murder of their mother, but their story unravels when one, needing the attention, keeps telling the how and when to friends.

Emotional, disturbing and a very sad movie. You don't know what is needed...sympathy or apathy. The acting is not the greatest, but Miss Breslin is so believable. Also in the cast: Zoe Belkin, Jeffrey Ballard, Jonathan Malen and Rusty Schwimmer.

Good acting, good story, amateurish direction & cinematography

I was looking for some gripping, even chilling story about dysfunctional teenagers. Like what we saw in "Thirteen", which was a great movie, but now with a - true - crime story. Nah.

The director has been a producer for over 30 years and got some famous people to act in it. The actresses (the three of them) are really good. However, the direction takes a completely wrong turn, trying to make it a "dark teen fantasy-comedy-thriller-drama" salad. For instance, you start to wonder how two young girl plan the murders and... you have four teenagers enacting fantasies about murder. That's so not the thing this film should portray.

All the intentions to connect with teenagers were completely flawed. Bad soundtrack, TERRIBLE montage effects, ludicrous mixture of genres, awful cinematography work. It's like parents using slang. All the attempts to highlight the medium -- divided screen, special lights, accelerated camera -- are pathetic and would not even work in an MTV show in 1997. It's not a film for teenagers -- and if it was supposed to be, it didn't work either.

There are scenes that people's faces are covered by SOMEONE'S HEAD -- and not intentionally! Unbelievable. If you are a director making a debut, be humble and let a competent cinematographer AND editor do their jobs. How beautiful this film would

On the top of that, a voice-over starts giving ANOTHER angle on the film -- those films about bitchy teenagers obsessed with fame, kind of like To Die For from Gus Van Sant -- only to forget about it minutes later and never coming back to that.

Anyways. I was interested in the story, and through all the amateur work I could grasp something from it. The two girls are great actresses, and Mira Sorvino portrays precisely the thin line between a likable weak person and a wreck that screws up their children.

Somewhere I heard this: some people don't have to work their way into the center of the stage. They can pull strings and buy themselves into it. Question is: are they ready for it?

Kind of disappointing

I had such high hopes for this movie. I love Abigail Breslin so I figured this movie would be good. It was definitely NOT good but it wasn't necessarily the worst movie ever. The acting wasn't very good at all. So overly dramatic. Im not sure if it was the actress though since she is actually very talented. Maybe a bad director? The other actress was just plain bad. I don't even remember her name. I believe she was the little girl from Narnia but I'm not sure. I really liked the plot I just couldn't get pass the horrible acting. I'm giving this movie 4 stars because even though the acting was awful (except for the actress who played the mother she was excellent!) I really liked the storyline. The movie didn't feel dragged out or rushed. It was put together nicely. It's worth at least one watch. Don't think I'll ever watch it again.
