Rx ★★½ Simple Lies 2006

When his parents face financial ruin, Andrew (Balfour) decides to head south of the border with two friends, Jonny (Hanks) and Melissa (German), to pull off a bigmoney drug deal. Things take a bad turn for the twentysomethings, however, and their only hope of returning home from Mexico is in the form of a perilous pact with gay German drug dealers—who enjoy partying dressed as Nazis—that also endangers their lives. Predictable but definitely not dull. 86m/C DVD . Eric Balfour, Colin Hanks, Lauren German, Danny Pino, Lulu Molina; D: Ariel Vromen; W: Ariel Vromen, Morgan Land. VIDEO
