A friend recommended this film to me stating it was the best film he'd seen this year. I am completely dumbfounded at the notion that he, other people at imdb, and several film critics have actually confused this quite possibly one of the worst written, acted, directed, edited, and overscored theme music to cover up the lack of any true emotion or suspense films ever made. I love indie films, but The Deep End is a harsh reminder as to how awful a film can be. Many of the reviews here have summed up why this film is such an abomination. I do have to give kudos to the cinematography, opening title sequence, and sound work, but the film was such a train wreck by the end with its horrendous script, acting and direction colliding, I found myself laughing harder than any comedy I've seen in recent memory.
I can't wait for the DVD to hear how the film makers explain what a
struggle it was to make such a bad film.
