We gave it a D

In this dud of a slasher movie, the assorted vixen-victims, led by Denise Richards and her spectacular wall of teeth, treat any man who tries to date one of them with such snooty, as-if! contempt that the film becomes a violent revenge fantasy against the underlying dismissiveness of girl power. We’re led to believe that the killer, who wears a Cupid mask, is a former junior-high geek seeking retribution for the night he was humiliated at a school dance. But he could just as well be any of the lotharios on screen, including one played by heartthrob David Boreanaz (of TV’s Angel). D
