A man abducts a woman and gets her a job
20 November 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

A sales clerk in a department shop gets blown off by a waitress in an out-of-the-way cafe, while the girl he's just spent the night with looks on as if not caring what he does. You'll wonder if girl's a prostitute for 10 seconds at the very most, be surprised by the man going back to the cafe to pretty much force the waitress - someone he'd only seen the one time before - onto the back of his motorbike and then take her to live with him.

If you're still watching, you'll be wondering what's happening, as the ridiculously unrealistic character events continue, with the man getting the waitress a job at a bar and escorting some drunken patron home.

With the only other "review" on the site pretty much detailing every plot point and the ending, you'll feel even more justified in turning this mess of a film off, which is exactly what I did, because I seriously doubted something so stupid could get any better.
