Oh, jeeees.
11 November 1999 | by (Tempe, AZ) – See all my reviews

Oh, Man, talk about the effect of advertising. Apparently, all that you have to do to enjoy box office succes is title your movie after a revered 19th century novel. Horrendous acting, directing, and cinematography in this sham of an effort.
