Mini's First Time (2006) R - 2½ Stars

Another one for the Bizarre collection, "Mini's First Time" is one of those movies that you have to shake your head for. I have to say that I was a bit taken back when the daughter is all of a sudden sleeping with the dad. I guess I didn't realise right away that Martin was actually Mini's step father and found it quit strange to see her sleeping with him. Either I wasn't paying attention to the dialogue well or the director didn't totally make that clear.

Mini (Nikki Reed), is a spoiled 18 year old teen age girl living wealthy and getting what she wants. She lives with her stepfather Martin (Alec Baldwin), and her rather annoying mother Diane (Carrie-Anne Moss). Mini has never felt loved and rebels against her mother at every given opportunity. She believes that everything should always be experienced for the "first time," regardless what the outcome is. And she finds that the easiest way to get what she wants, is to get her mother out of the picture. She seduces her step father Martin into taking her mother out. But not without attracting attention by Detective John Garson (Luke Wilson), and her neighbor Mike Ruddell (Jeff Goldblum).
