Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life (2005)

How bad is it? It's a Lifetime Original, so pretty bad indeed.
Should you see it? It's a bit dull, but yes.

Some have called this this generation's "Reefer Madness," but that's not exactly fair, though I get the comparison. A teenage boy becomes addicted to internet porn and then loses his place on the swim team, loses his girlfriend, develops family problems (he steals his mom's credit card to buy porn - so we now know the one person who's ever paid for internet porn) and attempts suicide by drowning, before finding religion and having a happy ending. The plot is ridiculous (though apparently based on a true story) and the acting poor and it drags. What makes it unintentionally funny is that, because of the network, no porn is actually shown and the boy doesn't masturbate, making one wonder just what this kid's real problem is.
