A former small-town golden boy returns to his hometown with his new girlfriend, only to find that his onetime high-school sweetheart isn't willing to let go of the past. In the working-class town where Mike (Matt Long) grew up, football is everything. A few months after leaving for Northwestern University on a scholarship, Mike arrives back home for Christmas break with his pretty new girlfriend, Elizabeth (Jessica Stroup), in tow.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.
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.
...there is so little new or innovative about it that if you're a normal moviegoer, you've seen it all before.
Too lazy, preposterous and inane to even be considered as a guilty pleasure.
The movie takes a premise that might have served as the basis of a weepy romantic drama and turns it into something very different, but no less insulting.
When is a movie remake not a movie remake? When the filmmakers involved know what they've made is so wretched they don't dare admit it. The most oblivious MTV viewer won't miss the blatant plagiarism.
Rooted by a nice sense of place but, much like its real life namesake, Homecoming isn't age-appropriate for everyone -- maybe just those in high school, or barely removed. Others will likely find the familiarity more humdrum than effectively nostal
A silly, low-rent mash-up of Misery and Fatal Attraction, featuring neither the clever psychology of the former nor the layers of emasculation and consequence of the latter.
You can tell where this is all going, and the familiarity wouldn't be so bad if this cast could have some fun with the cliches. Alas, these CW stars pout and frown and yell, while lumbering and plodding through the Stephen King/Rob Reiner playbook.
Homecoming is Exhibit A in how casting can make--or in this case, break--a genre picture.
