Half-baked
6 March 2002 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Hard to tell whether somebody wanted to make a pretentious allegory and threw in a naked Melanie Griffith to help market it, or just wanted to market a naked Melanie Griffith and threw in a pretentious allegory as justification. In any case, my guess is there wasn't enough budget for more than a half-baked job; the movie doesn't seem to know where it's going or why.
