.::THE FILM::.

What do you do when you're mom (Rosanna Arquette) lost all the family savings playing the market? How about having your father (Beau Bridges) get fired for being to "analog"? Well, you put cameras all over the house and record them doing what they do best - acting insane. That's exactly what Colby (Matthew Botuchis) does, and after a short while, winds up making $17k a week! Eventually his stupid family catches onto whatís going on and after partnering with Colby, they have certain demands and start writing scripts for their own characters.

After a short while, the online show becomes stale and they are forced to introduce a new character. In enters Ciro (Victor Alfieri), an Italian love interest for Colby's younger step sister Audrey (Baelyn Neff), and soon, the mother cougar wants in on some of that action. After several fight scenes the family becomes aware that everyone else knows their show is now a scam and the father makes a decision to end it once and for all.

While I didn't hate the film, it certainly deserved to sit on the shelf for a few years before making its Direct to DVD debut. Aside from the fact that we get a little bit of brother/sister incest vibe going on, we have to suffer through what is probably some of the stupidest people in the world. How the hell can they not see cameras all over there house? Oh, because they are "hidden" behind plants or way up high in the ceiling? They have a red flashing light! You would see that during the day and certainly at night time. Ugh.

But I digress... Itís still a fairly enjoyable rental flick even with stupid people. Though keep in mind, this flick is not for the family. Donít let the cute cover confuse you...we get some pretty dirty sex scenes many times throughout the film (including the parents and brother and sister...) as well as two women climaxing while making Ravioli... Yeah, not family hour.



.::SPECIAL FEATURES::.

The Making of ISeeYou.com (~15 Minutes) - If you liked the film, check this feature out. Itís pretty interesting to see the script was written before the big TV reality boom.

Additional Scenes from the Theatrical Version (~5 Minutes) - Some pretty lackluster scenes that look like they were used to replace some of the more graphic ones from the start of the film. Nothing that great besides an additional scene at the dinner table.

Digital Copy - Included is a coupon to redeem a free Digital Copy of the film (not compatible with Macs or iPods)

Also included is the theatrical trailer.



.::AUDIO & VIDEO::.

I-See-You.com is presented in 16x9 (1.77:1). While not perfect, the film does look pretty good for a Direct to DVD release.

Warner has included a standard English Dolby Digital 5.1 track that is perfectly fine. The film is very dialog heavy and it certainly does the trick.



.::OVERALL::.

I-See-You.com is worth a rent if you enjoy teen comedy flicks with a slight twist. While it has a few decent moments, the film deserves to have gone directly to DVD. Not great, but certainly better than the past few Direct-to-DVD releases I've had to review.
