While Loser has a few mildly entertaining moments, this movie is basically a loser.

As you might have surmised, Loser is about a loser - a college kid who is anything but popular with his roommates and classmates. The problem is that he is just no fun to be with - he acts like a stodgy, over-the-hill forty-year-old.

Then he meets a girl - who, unfortunately, is already sleeping with her professor. But it's ridiculously obvious that she and the loser will end up together in the end anyway.

The only scene I enjoyed was when girlfriend launched into a monologue about all the people she hated. But later she turned into a nice, sweet, stereotypical movie character again.

Unless you have no taste in movies, or have a thing for dumb, pointless college movies, The Loser isn't worth your time.

My Rating = One Star

Rent

The In Crowd is your average horror movie: it doesn't stink, but it's not the greatest.

As the title suggests, the movie is about an in crowd of rich kids vacationing at a posh resort. The perfect, popular Britney makes friends with a staff member - who has recently been released from a mental hospital. You've got your psychotic behavior right there. However, several other characters act pretty nutty too.

You have to give The In Crowd credit for throwing together a group of seriously screwed up people. Everyone has a deep, dark secret. I wouldn't want to spoil the plot, but I'll give you a hint - the murderer is not who you probably suspect.

However, that is often the case with horror movies. The In Crowd wins no big originality points. Certainly this is no Scream.

However, even though the cast contains no "big names", it is capable. The characters are as interesting for a while, although they eventually get tiresome. The word that keeps coming to mind when I think of this movie is "average". I would recommend seeing The In Crowd - but don't pay to see it in theatres, just rent it.

My Rating = Two Stars

Rent
