What can we say about ''The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things''? Well, [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Cole and Dylan Sprouse]] plays Jeremiah, a boy, who is taken from his foster parents to live with his drug-addicted, prostitute mother Sarah and along the way has [[spoiler: sex with Music/MarilynManson]], gets [[spoiler: raped and molested several times]], and at one point becomes a [[ArsonMurderAndJayWalking Christian]]!. A very [[{{Squick}} squicky]] film to say the least.
