When Becky brings Marcus the lemonade, she puts the glass aside the pool. Later when they talk it's gone and back again between shots.
Better than expected
It's a fairly clever concept and somewhat original in a sense though
most of us have seen similar concepts a few times before. The acting is
good and I think that's what makes this movie so entertaining for being
low budget. It's a bit above par for say a made for TV lifetime movie
that you could watch without grimacing in embarrassment for the movie
makers and actors.
At one point, you think OK it's a hoax to teach him a lesson and at
another point you think no, it's all genuine and he's so far in, he's
almost out. I got the impression that the people behind this production
may have went in half baked and when the material was working so well,
went ahead with making it a crime drama rather than washing out and
turning it into a hokey happy ending Lifetime wino flick.
I must also admit, about half way through I predicted exactly what was
taking place but it didn't spoil anything. Like I said, the acting
really sold it and they had a clever concept. Just goes to show that
budget isn't all it's wrapped up to be nor is lining your credits with
iconic names everyone knows.
Worth watching at least once.
