This story of rich teens way out of their depth is chilling and nicely played. But it feels like a cautionary after-school movie spiced up with sex and violence.

Like Catherine Hardwicke's Thirteen, only with money, this is an engaging and frequently tense teen drama with a full-on performance from Anne Hathaway.

Combines documentary realism and an exploration of modern teen behavior within an intensely erotic drama of racial tension.

It shows that a movie can premiere on DVD and just tell a quality story, not some knock off action vehicle for a star past his prime.

Despite the high-powered credits... this slight cautionary tale about slumming rich kids is a minor effort.

You'd at least expect a decent exploitation movie from this material.

Aside from the already-famous naked bits, there's just nothing here you haven't seen before. And smarter.
