A talented cast wasted beneath the muddled script.

Rosen isn't quite clever enough as either a writer or a director to pull off the multiple twists 'Curve' finally takes. The satiric edge and much of the movie's logic disappear in its last 20 minutes.

Rare that you'll see this many moronic plot twists in just one movie.

So concerned about its plot that it doesn't pay much attention at all to its characters, and therefore, the film only comes off feeling even more empty-headed.

Dumb movie...at least in Dead Man on Campus they had the sense to use the whole "if your roomate kills him/herself you get straight A's" legend to make a comedy.
