Carrie (Sara Fletcher) is one of the many country girls who has come to
Hollywood to become famous, but so far, she hasn't amounted to too much,
she has moved in with her semi-famous cousin Stefy (Kelly Noonan) in
exchange for taking care of a few things like retrieving a leaked sex
tape, she has become a celebrity spy for celebrity blogger Echo (Katherine
Randolph), and she has become a blogger herself, and has even picked
herself a favourite enemy, fellow blogger and wannabe celebrity Jordan
(Leah McKendrick), a girl that's so fake it's not even funny anymore.
though Jordan is abducted, live on camera, and Carrie knows the whole
thing is fake from square one. So she hooks up with her new boyfriend
Zeffer (Travis Brorsen) and fellow blogger Raychel (Christie Burson), a
personal enemy of Jordan, to track down the alledged abductee and prove
she's still alive and kicking and most of all, free. Our three heroes
succeed much sooner than even they would have thought, but before Carrie
has even had the chance to blog about it, Jordan has beaten her to the
punch, apologizing to her fans and making sure that everybody knows it was
Carrie who has found out. Right after her apology though, the guys who
have played her abductors in the prank performance abduct her for real -
and now it's up to Carrie to find her, no matter if the whole thing is
just another setup or not ...

Granted, my synopsis might make iCrime sound
overconvoluted and far-fetched - but in fact it is a fun film. Basically,
the whole thing comes across in the guise of a mystery plot, but on closer
inspection it is a spot-on satire on present-day Hollywood with all its
blogosphere, internet haters, reality TV and the whole notion of being
famous for being famous - and interestingly, all of this makes perfect
sense within the framework of a genre movie, especially since director
Baers Fonté seems to understand his subject and refrains from using the
internet as some kind of magic wand like way too many other productions
that touch blogging and the like. Add to this a very likeable cast playing
well fleshed-out characters, and you got yourself a hugely enjoyable
