I really don't want to waste time on detailing point by point what I didn't like about the film Hard Candy. In summary, this film will probably work for those that can turn their brains off during a film or are great about suspending disbelief. I mean really shutting down your brain and really suspending all disbelief. The filmmakers obviously believe there is a marketplace of film consumers that will do just that. For those with higher expectations .... avoid like the plague.
