Another Teenage Bomb !
6 October 2003 | by sandcrabSee all my reviews

Where oh where did the genes go ? I suffered through this film because my wife is addicted to soaps on Lifetime Movie Network. Just because progeny of Hollywood personalities get an inside track doesn't mean they can really act or deserve the chance. This is just a complete waste of viewer's time unless you are a teeny-bopper looking for some much lacking T & A. I'd be afraid if she ( T.S. )told me her real name, I'd crack up laughing and be carted off to the funny farm ! She can't carry coals to Newcastle yet alone a worthwhile production ! A minus ten on a scale of one to ten. BTW, if she was the champion, I wouldn't take her to a dog fight !
