    A real one trick pony. Yes, you'll feel stuck if you watch the whole thing. For Mena fans only.

    An excellent and darkly satirical treatment of how we treat the homeless in America. As the situation becomes more and more ridiculous, one realizes how labeling and dehumanizing people based on their circumstances causes self-fulfilling prophecies where they assume the role society has given them.

    a small film but with a big heart, feel good ending.

    My wife got a hold of the Netflix que and picked this movie. What a mistake that was! Worst movie I've ever seen. Told my wife if she fires up the desktop ever again I'm taking her to Divorce City.

    Obviously not a true story. Brandi accidentally hit a man when she was driving home, the man became stuck in the windshield and she left him to die. There were various incidents where the situation might be uncovered but she avoided them. She became more aggressive in her attempts to keep this under control as the film goes on. The characters were all annoying, you can't really feel mad or sad for anyone, but I have to admit Mena Suvari was pretty good in this film. If you want some brainless fun, maybe this film is for you.

    Never a dull moment, this movie provides an excellent blend of humor and edge-of-your-seat action/drama. I'm surprised I had never heard of this movie before a few weeks ago, and I'm glad I saw it.

    I liked the concept of a guy trapped in a windshield trying to survive while the person who hit them panics and goes about things in hilarious ways. While the first portion of that worked for me in this film with plenty of viceral gory details coming as a result... the second portion did not work for me. While there were a few ha ha moments, most of it was too stupid to be taken seriously, and yet played too seriously to be taken lightly enough. And then you've got Mena Suvari whom I don't really care much for as an actor to begin with but when you combine her with that hairdo... eek! The story itself isn't anything special either. It's actually quite predictable and bland. Nothing really stands out as original here. The end result is a film that's ok to watch but nothing to write home about. You can rest assured that if you never see this film, you haven't missed anything but should you come across it and have nothing better to watch, it will at least safisfy some cravings.

    I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this film. Mena is fairly one-dimensional as an actress, but she's pretty believable in this far-fetched, drama/black comedy. I could watch Stephen Rea read a menu. It was nice to go into this film not knowing what was going to happen. And what finally does happen. Stuart Gordon, baby!

    It's pretty silly, and the characters are mostly annoying idiots, but Gordon wrings a decent amount of tension out of Rea's attempts to escape.

    Pretty riveting but also oddly pointless.
