    This movie was an example of the twisted up minds of people nowadays!!!! The only part that made sense was when the boy and his sister were talking about his sexual interest in girls, and the two of them having sex together. THAT was very interesting. Everything else was junk, even the credits at the end were a mumbo-jumbo!
