      Audience Member Just released from prison, Eddie heads straight to his brothers house (wife and baby included) and establishes his complete lack of respect for Terry (his brother) immediately by inviting himself into the house unannounced and taking a shower. Who needs to be invited , it's family right ? Like most brothers, Terry welcomes Eddie with open arms and throws a party that night on his behalf. Eddie reunites with a old flame but prefers his brothers wife and being the better looking of the 2 he easily gets her. His brother puts a roof over his head, feeds him and loans him money . A good dose of reality here because this is how most people show their appreciation for inviting them to live in your house when you have nowhere else to go.What more could you ask for when you have a place to live with no rent, you have food, your brother loans you money and you get to screw his wife while he is at work to support you and the slut. Eddie buys a clunker Corvette for transportation and to get back into drag racing which landed him in prison to begin with. After landing a job where his brother and estranged Father work he quickly realized the need to supplement his income by ? You guessed it ....., stealing. His brother also "works" for the same guy who. runs a body shop and buys stolen cars for parts etc. Now Eddie can get rid of the clunker and buy a easily 20k-30k classic shiny red Camaro to race and take his brothers wife for romantic little drives.The lil slut is eager to please and is having the time of her life. Alas it is to be a short lived romance when as they always eventually do, Terry finds out. Of course the 2 lovebirds are sobbing and crying just ate up with remorse and I once heard a DA put it perfectly with these situations, "They are sorry alright, sorry they were caught" Which is the truth. They were living it up having a blast with no concern whatsoever for anyone but themselves.The ending was surprising I will admit. A interesting movie which does not attempt to sugarcoat how close friends and family will not hesitate to stab you in the back when you have a wife they are attracted to and if they are better looking, it is so easy it's not even funny. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Sincere performances from Shelley and crudup can only elevate this material so much. Worth a viewing only if you love the two leads. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie plods along and goes nowhere fast - yet you can't stop watching it. Call it morbid curiousity, but you want to know what happens next. The story is not the most exciting, but the relationship between Crudup and Shelley is solid enough to wonder where it is heading. I can't recommend this movie to everyone, but Billy Crudup is hot and does a great I would recommend this for Crudup fans, like me. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Great little slice of life comedy. I love the genre, and I love a bit of skating. It has its weak moments, see Tom Green for example, and Sweet Lou is a Matthew Macoughnahey from Dazed and Confused rip off. Some damned fine skating though Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member i fliPon luV dis Movi3 cuZ thY ar3 s0 iTz jusT s0 gUd Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice Skateboarding movie... a Sk8ers must watch...
