Storyline

On January 18, 2003, police, alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls, arrived at the girls Toronto area town house to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic, having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor, drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities. In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumours and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the accident. Police began piecing together rumours that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident, the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold-blooded, premeditated killers. Written by Anonymous

Amateurish direction and bad acting
6 January 2015 | by blue-tooth-8See all my reviews

It's a Weak attempt from producer turn director Stanley M. Brooks in directorial debut. He tries to make black comedy instead he made "Dark teen fantasy- comedy-thriller-drama" salad. The script is equally bad with some weak narration from Breslin at the start. It jumps all over the place from scenes you'd expect to see in 'Gilmore Girls' through to some very heavy scenes (which are handled very badly). The transition of their emotions from fear to anxiety to giddiness had no natural flow. Not even for a crazy person. Nothing makes sense, the girls are supposedly very smart with excellent grades and have learned four languages (one of which they created themselves) and yet throughout the movie they do some of the most incredibly stupid things you could possibly imagine.

What really got me though was that at the end of the movie I had to remind myself that this was based on a true story, which is absolutely insane.it pretty much takes a sociopath to murder their own mother. It was always about money and buying the things they wanted. Plain and simple. The fact that they are making this movie really ticks me off. The moral being? What? That after being caught you can spend four short years in juvi and then get on with your life while your mother no longer can? Sheesh.
