Instead, our judgment on the characters were tainted, either as a result of the controversial topic, or by the Liongate marketing department.So, when the film started, we already charged Jeff guilty of pedophilia.He did so mostly to strengthen Hayley's character.In the end, Hayley became the preacher, and Jeff the violated alter boy.Page, convicted and energetic, dominated every scene in the film, whether she was in or not.On the other hand, Wilson, being tied up and gagged for most of the film, was reduced to acting scared.There, both Hayley and Jeff's true intentions come to light, their meeting which was no accident on either side, and the intentions which may be incompatible and have serious and deadly consequences.
On May 19, 2006, at the age of six, Grayson was diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Sandra Oh's brief appearance was a reminder how contrived the whole film has become. Spade's background in directing commercials clearly showed.
Most of the scenes are static, and transitions were limited to fade-in, fade-out, and panning across a black wall.

The disparity between the two characters made their efforts futile in salvaging the script.
