Rating: PG-13 for violence, sexual content, language and smoking What it's about: A troubled young man finds love and purpose in the love of a girl he dates on a dare. The kid attractor factor: Robert Pattinson, from Twilight, in a romantic role without fangs. Good lessons/bad lessons: When a guy asks you out looking as if he just got beat up, run. Violence: More than you'd expect. Language: Some profanity, not much Drugs: RPattz drinks beer and smokes, almost incessantly. Parents' advisory: Not even remotely as clever or deep as it seems to think it is, this is a gateway drama for Pattinson fans aging out of teen vampire tales.
