Cheap Commercialism is Not Indignant to Capitalism
26 February 2002 | by (Frankfurt, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is undoubtedly the worst movie I've ever seen. I can't get it through my brain how a director could seriously produce such rubbish. The film has no plot, there is no character development, the choreography is nothing better than third-grade mimicking, the throw-away music is absolutely atrocious and, well, whatever else needs to be considered when judging the quality of a film, is without a doubt terrible here too.

I wonder how the director was able to sleep to night.
