New Best Friend

Critics Consensus

Generic, confusing, and trashy, New Best Friend is a laughably bad, obvious campus whodunit.

    Not terrible, but not very good, either.

    New Best Friend is entertaining trash that we find ourselves engrossed in as much as we hate to admit it. Mia Kirsher delivers a stellar performance as Alicia, a college girl who overdoses under suspicious circumstances and the prime suspects are her new upper class filthy rich friends. Sheriff Artie Bonner (Taye Diggs) is called by the Dean (Edmund J. Kearney) to carry out a discreet investigation, since the school is dependent on the wealthy families of its rich students, and a scandal would jeopardize its reputation and consequently its income. But as he looks deeper into his investigations, he discovers that the seemingly innocent and perfect student Alicia might not be all that she appears to be. We've got sex, drugs, and nudity, Dominique Swain (playing the cheeky deviant Sydney) getting naked here and engaging in lesbian sex with Alicia. Meredith Monroe plays a darker role than her role as Andie on Dawson's Creek and is convincing as the Queen Bee of this elite clique.

    Wait? Huh? What is this film about? hanh? Fitting in? "New Best Friend" is "Utterly Inane and ucomprehensible. Blurry Lesbian Sex,Drug parties,missing dialouge,and answers. This is one of the worst films to do about basicly nothing. Two Middle Fingers Up!" No More Comment!

    This movie was very deep. Kind of like Cruel Intentions, or thirteen...
