Quite possibly the most uninteresting film ever made.
4 December 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

This film may be the only movie with a plot lower than the plot in "Pod People". Wait, I forgot, this film had no plot. Basically, it's about jets refueling. The end. Why this film was ever made is still a mystery to me. Apparently someone had nothing better to do. It's films like this that make me want to stop being a movie buff, but then I think about all of the worthwhile films or MST3K and I feel better.
