A waste
15 December 2000 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie today. I should have read the reviews here first and I would have saved myself seven bucks. As I watched it I couldn't believe how bad it was and I don't mean Jim but all the others. The movie must have been made in an hour. Shame on Vidmark Entertainment for the grossly misleading box.
