Barrymore makes this at least tolerable but she is pretty much the only saving grace. The story is pretty lame, a teenager moves after she is implicated in a murder. She winds up shacking up with a writer, but some strange things keep happening. Is it Barrymore's evil twin or is it her? I think it all comes down to who cares? It's poorly written and boring and really there isn't much here worthwhile, I'm not even sure why Barrymore participated. Oh well, definitely one to try to avoid if you get the chance but there are far more painful films than this one.
