Stateside plays like urgent ideas for a movie which Anselmo needed to make, but they're still in note form.

Stateside veers toward "Showgirls"-level camp but merely ends up being awful.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/4

This one isn't even worth watching on cable TV, unless you're ready to be fitted for a straight jacket.

The two leads don't have any chemistry, especially the flat, emotionless Tucker.

May 18, 2004
This story about mental illness within a romantic relationship wallows in the reckless abuse of the privileges of wealth. It's an unsatisfying cinematic interlude.

[L]ike scenes cut from another, far better film...
May 19, 2004
Contrived and emotionally incomplete, and strained further by self-consciously cockeyed dialogue.
May 20, 2004
Anselmo, basing his script on a true story, juggles more plots than a full season of The O.C., setting his cast adrift in a sea of soap-opera bubbles.

Although based on a true story, it never establishes its own identity, often playing like warmed-over J.D. Salinger.

This muddled drama begins as a high school soap opera, segues into a boys-to-men military drama and peters out as a feeble answer to Girl, Interrupted.

A ludicrous indie romance.

The Young And The Wacko... The movie tries to be a lot of things -- but it fails at all of them.

Well-acted but ultimately bland...

June 8, 2004
With a better cast than it deserves and a script from which it deserved better, the film is pleasant where it should be rowdy, quaint where it should be refreshing, and altogether far less daring than it thinks it is.

Writer-director Reverge Anselmo handles sensitive issues not with kid gloves, but with a metaphorical baseball mitt, fumbling with tone and obviously laboring to force quirks upon characters and situations.
