The Plot Moves Around
Shadowy found circling a glass-walled house. They enter the house and went straight into the bedroom. Sleigh Bells, “Crown on the Ground”. With the guitar and drums they make loud sound. The figures’ faces now visible and these faces are high school kids including boys and girls. They open the door of nearest bedroom and start to pick the necklaces, shoes and purses.
This is the first scene of the movie. The role of Ring’s leaders was played by Katie Chang and Israel Broussard, while Rachel Lee and Frank Prugo, who played the role of Rebecca Ahn and Marc Hall. Rebecca and Marc meet in the school and soon they become fast friends. Both are thrill-seekers and for the sake of thrill they steal from a neighbor but soon they make their target celebrities including Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan, and also Rachel Bilson and Paris Hilton. They wait their targets until their target is out of the town for a piece of work.
Soon their gang expands and to include Chloe (Claire Julien), Sam (Taissa Farmiga), and Nicki (Emma Watson), group’s most disreputable members includes Alexis Neiers, Chang, Broussard, Julien, and also Farmiga.
The structure of the movie is linear, the gang party, then rob, then party, then rob, over and over. The Movie steals several million dollars in jewelry and clothes, and most of them they keep for their own use. They desire to live super-rich. Regardless how much money any target has, they always ready to envy some target.

◘ Negative Feedback
J. B. Taylor says about the American Movie that ‘There was nothing to this film. It was pointless. Emma Watson gives a great performance but that is literally the only good thing about the film.
