Simply awful
21 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Five minutes into watching this film I began to wish I hadn't put it into the machine, and as it dragged on to its wretched conclusion I forced myself not to press OFF in the way that you sometimes cannot drag your eyes away from a catastrophe.

I am unable find one redeeming attribute in this train wreck. The dialogue is simply awful. The acting is simply awful. The directing is simply awful. The story is simply awful.

It is one of those movies where you wonder how anybody -- cast or crew -- could get out of bed and come to work on it day after day.

If I could give it zero stars, I would. What a total waste of production time and money this debacle is. Yeeeechh!
