A dull, soapy potboiler that lacks the energy to qualify as a guilty pleasure, The In Crowd is undone by slow pacing, poor acting, and a stunning lack of originality.

Brittany is so obviously wicked, from the first glimpse we get of her, that there's nowhere for Ward to take her, except over the top.

The press release makes a "special request" to not reveal the ending. They didn't need to worry. Anyone over PG-13 age is going to know exactly where this movie is going long before it gets there.

The In Crowd isn't a movie, it's Gorgonzola, a crumbly summertime stinker veined with pop-cultural fungus.

A country-club member takes a club employee under her wing in this cagey formula thriller that exploits homosexuality better than murder-mystery clues.

Dark and twisted, with sexually suggestive undercurrents, this one's as safe to miss as a sunburn by the club poolside.

The movie is billed as an erotic thriller, but it's not very erotic, nor is it really all that thrilling. It's just there, a languid, workmanlike time-waster that's the multiplex equivalent of sitting around the country club pool and working on your tan.

The acting is universally abysmal, although so are all the lines of dialogue. So I can't entirely blame the cast members.

The In Crowd's deep, dark secret? That it, too, is just a mediocre movie-of-the-week in feature-film clothing.

The In Crowd isn't a movie--it's a J. Crew catalogue. Junk mail, junk movie.

Somebody wrote this, directed this, and wrote out checks for the actors. They all have family somewhere proudly boasting that their child makes movies in Hollywood.

This is the stuff of good, clean, campy fun. But instead of titillating, The In Crowd is nothing but a deadly dull business.

There was no advance screening for this movie, so I actually had to pay to see this one myself. Don't make my mistake, because I'll never see that eight dollars ever again!

Lack of a sympathetic main character is only one of the film's many faults.
