Wendy (Winstead) is on a roller coaster with her best friend’s soon-to-be ex-boyfriend because her own stupid ass boyfriend had to ride up front even though she was scared.  I mean, what kind of loser boyfriend leaves his girl to ride up front when she’s not feeling it.  I think the real message of this film is that stupid people fucking die stupidly.  But breathing again, I digress.

Miss Wendy has a vision the roller coaster will crash.  The roller coaster operators will only let off so many people even though now Wendy’s boyfriend suddenly wants to act like a boyfriend.  But he doesn’t get to get off and he dies.  Everyone who got off lives though, but only temporarily.  Sure Wendy and Kevin (Merriman) try to go around saving people, but they are all so stupid that no one listens.  Especially the footballer who “only knows how to win”.

Who knew Charlie Sheen got his life mantra from a Final Destination movie?!

Good things: boob shots, cast, direction, effects, solid opening and if you’re into girls, wonderful eye candy.

Bad things: everyone acts like a little bitch at some point, it’s a little too inconsistent character wise, there’s too many overused jokes about Osama Bin Laden and Mr. Goth (Lemche) is really just a caricature.

And if you want, take a shot every time an ironic song comes on the radio.  Favorite death scene: Frankie and his bloody, bloody brains.

I give it a 67/100.  DJ gave it a 63.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
