Neither trashy nor self-consciously funny enough to make its genre-trapped ludicrousness sing.

As ineffectual police work and broken feet stack up, the silliness gets out of hand.

Everything, including the ending, plays out exactly as you'd expect.

An unmitigated B-movie that isn't thrilling enough or cheesy enough to make it worth the trip.

Homecoming is coldly efficient for what it is. But what it is is trash.

Nothing in the film is truly, laughably bad, but then -- unlike this year's Obsessed -- nothing is campily entertaining, either.

Audience Reviews for Homecoming

Really crappy movie.. the story line was good but the acting was off. Only by Mischa Barton. I just haven't liked anything she has been in since The Sixth Sense. This movie was released in July and I just watched it on t.v. Just shows you how bad it was. I did think Matt Long was good and Jessica Stroup. Liked their performance. But the movie was predictable and just blah.


Super Reviewer

This movie wasn't too bad...mental glimpses of "Misery" and "Fatal Attraction" gives you this fairly good teen gone to college from former small town...and comes back home to visit...with complications from and old flame which includes his new main squeeze...see this it was interesting.

Decent. Barton was better in this than she was in the O.C. Pretty predictable, and funny that the director is the same one that directs the TV show Teen Mom.
