An average film that really was Wahlbergs first big picture before his Boogie Nights breakthrough. He plays a young man who has a violent past and definite questions about his motives. He falls for one of the rich goody girls, who overall is young, nice, sweet and naive. Her dad realizes something is wrong with the guy and doesn't approve instantly. The film chronicles his behavior as it ascends lower and lower and more dark secrets are found out...and we realize the dude is a bad human being that could even threaten their well being. Despite this she still wants to date him until it's too late and he turns on her and her family.
it's cheesy and predictable however and we know where it's going from the start.
the acting isn't good enough, neither is the script to ultimately save it's flaws.
