Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Basically a female ''buddy'' movie about the two girls. Odd how in one movie, the hero gets the death sentence, while in this one, the maximum is life for the same offence. Wonder what the Thais think of the recent spate of movies painting them as a corrupt nation.

April Willett: I never stopped crying....

Kristyn D'Amico: I like Claire Danes in this movie 'cause she is a cool girl. She is my favourite actress.

Megan Weber: Go buy the soundtrack. It's amazing, just like the movie!

Krysta Demilio: It rocked!!
