Extremely Boring
11 August 2000 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie is extremely boring and very slow-moving. It is also rather discontinuous and disjointed. The acting isn't terrible, but the lack of plot movement ruins any effort. Badly in need of better editing. The worst movie I've ever seen.
