Critic Reviews for California Scheming

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Writer-director Marco Weber's unsatisfying Malibu thriller is burdened by uneven performances and a surfeit of half-developed ideas.

Audience Reviews for California Scheming

Ugly and monotonous, California Scheming is a poorly made psychological thriller. The story follows a young girl who seduces two high school boys and manipulates them into carrying out her nefarious schemes. The acting is atrocious, and the directing is even worse. The sets look incredibly cheap, the cinematography is bad, and the sound mixing is awful. But worst of all is the dour and sadistic tone, which is extremely off-putting. Nihilistic garbage, California Scheming doesn't have anything to say and fails to entertain.
