I found this movie to be average. The best part I liked was it portrays the life of the rich teen kids and is nicely presented to the audience. The characters have worked hard but some things seem to be heard or seen before and some scenes could be predicted.

Product Overview

Two affluent girls (Ann Hathaway and Bijou Phillips) from Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades suburb, fascinated with hip-hop culture and bored with their everyday lives, are inspired to imitate the "gangsta lifestyle." They quickly run into trouble when they befriend an East LA gang, spiraling their lives of luxury into a dark storm of violence and desperation.

Editors Note
Note Acclaimed director Barbara Kopple's (HARLAN COUNTY, USA) feature stars Anne Hathaway as Allison, a rich teenager who runs riot in Los Angeles after a mixture of boredom and rebellion leads her to a likeminded gang with trouble in mind. One fateful night causes Allison and her friend Emily (Bijou Phillips) to seek out the tough Latino guy Hector (Freddy Rodriguez), whom Allison falls for. But Hector's dangerous lifestyle is like nothing Allison has ever experienced, and she soon finds herself deep in an unfamiliar world that she struggles to escape from.

ReviewSource Variety.com
Review "Slumming for Dummies" would be a better title for Havoc, an earnest, semi-gritty tale of bored rich girls from Pacific Palisades teasing tattooed Latino drug dealers in East Los Angeles. Penned by Traffic scribe Stephen Gaghan and helmed by veteran documaker Barbara Kopple, handsomely mounted pic about morally fluid kids with largely absentee parents features gifted young thesps acting up a foul-mouthed storm and material that zigzags between convincing and trying way too hard. Forthright nudity by nubile leads Anne Hathaway and Bijou Phillips should make this a popular video item...
