James Marsden and Katie Holmes are 25-year-old high schoolers in a town in which bad kids suddenly turn into preppies in varsity jackets who are prone to extreme violence and murder. The film is strangely inert and lets the audience know a lot of revelations without the characters finding them out [which would create drama], but you do have the pleasure of Holmes trying to be a burnout chick with a sadly misguided attempt at high school vernacular.
