ultiple choice quiz hot-shot.
How would you feel if you rented a movie starring your favorite "Flavor of the month" teen heart throb and:
a) it was filmed years ago, before he lost his baby fat and had a bad hair-cut that rendered him about as cute as Corey Feldman during his coke habit years.
b) he was only in it for about three scenes and spoke maybe eight lines, mostly one liners and mumblings.
c) it had the budget of a Psychic Hotline info-mercial.
d) all of the above.
If you answered d) you'd be correct, since they all apply to this lame duck drama.
Yeah, I'd be one pretty pissed-off tween. Especially if I used my hard-whined allowance on that rental instead of that Watermelon LipSmacker I had been eyeing.
In Cash Crop, Dawson Creek star James Van Der Beek (the triple word score of last names) slums it in this rural tale of illegal pot growing farmers trying to make ends meet.
When traditional farming doesn't cut it, Ma & Pa Kettle turn to hydroponic labs and seedy drug dealers to bring home the bacon.
About as thrilling as watching corn grow, Cash Crop is one of those low budget mistakes that sat on the shelf until one of the cast members either:
a) made it big
b) got addicted to over-the counter weight loss pills.
c) robbed a 7-11.
Hmmm, given a few more years, Dawson might even accomplish the hat-trick.
