      Just back from seeing this - agree totally with the comments re: Keanu, in fact I'm still not absolutely sure if he was deliberately awkward and wooden at times..

      In any event though, I really enjoyed this and even after watching the trailers was surprised in parts and found it to be not quite what I was expecting..

      Possibly one of the worst films ever. Let me count the ways.

      Girls turn up at house. It's raining, did they arrange that? I ask as it makes it more likely they will be invited in. It means they are stood there soaked to the skin, are wearing little, and who'd leave them outside in such weather? If it was a warm night it might have been different and Keanu could have said, "wait there." So did they engineer the rain to help their cause?

      Keanu phones for a taxi. Taxi will take 45 minutes to arrive. Where do they live? Middle Earth? Again this helps as it means they get to chat for some time. So did they arrange that? I assume not but after 45 minutes of saying they like threesomes, again it works out convenient for the plot. Of course Keanu could have offered to drive them, then it might have all fallen a little flat.

      Why did he invite them in? I wouldn't invite girls in it at all as it would be sod's law either someone would be out walking their dog, notice and say something later to the missus, or I'd worry my missus could come back any second and say, "forgot my phone charger" or similar.

      Also if something is too good to be true, I'd suspect a stitch up. maybe my missus is testing me. Maybe this is a hidden camera show, better be on best behavior and not let them in. If nothing else they could be con merchants and nick something.

      Keanu turns them down, they carry on anyway, technically if you say no, it's rape, but he goes with it eventually.

      Next morning, they start to blackmail Keanu. For a guy with a mobile phone and an ipad I wondered why he didn't nip round a corner, put on his voice recorder app, then ask them to go through it again. Why not get their entire plan recorded? Never mind.

      Keanu calls the police and then hangs up. Usually it's standard procedure that in such a case the police call round. "Why did you call and hang up?" is the obvious question. The police don't come round.

      Keanu takes them home in his car. He comes back home and somehow they get in again. How? I thought the US had panic rooms, alarm push buttons, maybe even a bolt for the door might have helped, but no, after a few freaks in his house he doesn't stick his pistol, down the back of his jeans, keep a baseball bat to hand, put the chain on the door or whatever else. Somehow he misses one creep up on him and knock him out from behind.

      Next thing - and I hate this. If you are knocked out for more than a few seconds something serious has happened. So serious you might actually die later. I appreciate the girls might not know or care and Keanu might not know but I wish Hollywood wouldn't use it as a convenient plot device. Show Keanu die from a bleed on the brain later, don't let people think they can be knocked out and come round much later and be fine.

      The girls claim to be 15. I burst out laughing at this point. They are played by actresses who I believe are mid-20's when it was made. Whatever, I thought, "there's no way they are close to being 15." Surprisingly Keanu doesn't notice how old they look and never questions that they might be lying to him. Hmm.

      Keanu seems unable to fight them off. Ok he's supposed to have an injury to his shoulder. Why he's never really grabbing a decent weapon or not booting the living **** out of them I've no idea.

      Another guy turns up, he dies. The girls know someone who can dispose of bodies. How convenient. Of course they do.

      Keanu runs and hides from them when they let him go. Keanu does the trope of running from the antagonist and falling over once found. This is a guy who was Neo and rescued a speeding bus that couldn't go below 50mph yet doing the old horror film trope of the damsel falling over when chased.

      He's buried in the back garden. They say, "go ahead shout, no one can hear you." Oddly though they know all the surrounding houses are empty. How? and how convenient again.

      They also know he's done a "monster" routine with his kids. How? Did they break in, plant cameras? What? I get they might have stalked their victim first, but how exactly are they doing any of this? If I wanted to sneak in the next door garden and watch my neighbour he'd probably notice the outside light coming on. What are they doing?

      So the girls can watch multiple houses, know which one's are occupied and which aren't, know when the rest of your family are away, knock on your door during a rainstorm, seduce you as it will take ages for the taxi to turn up, the police won't come if called, sneak back in if necessary, knock you out, and have a friend who disposes of bodies.

      Keanu with the list of things these ninjas can do you never stood a chance.

      That’s certainly a lot of text on the ‘worst film ever’! :D

      I was watching it largely because I'd heard it was bad but not why. I ended up shouting at the television at how stupid it was and days later I was still wound up by it.

      The post was to get it off my chest and I'm now starting to feel better.

      I enjoyed the threesome scene so forgave it for the rest of its awfulness.

      If you want porn, there's the Internet. You don't need to watch bad films for a bit of smut anymore.

      He’s motherfudgeing John Wick, you’d think he’d be able to cope with a couple of demented little vixens! :D
