There must be more boring films than this, but..
30 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At the moment it is very hard to think of any. A little girl gets wrenched away from her loving foster parents into the arms of her abusive biological father (don't ask why). Cue over an hour of enough waterworks to flood the Thames, more courtroom scenes than you'd see in an entire season of Magnum P.I, and one of the most annoying, cutesy moppets in the history of cinema who is so sickly sweet your teeth will rot just by looking at her. Will she end up staying with Mr Violent at the end, or will she go back into the warm bosom of her adopted family, who have kept a 24 hour vigil on her cheap music box with the ballerina (great metaphor there, guys!!) while she's been gone? What do you think? I'm sure you already know, so instead of telling you I will now go clay pigeon shooting.. with a DVD!! Wish me luck!! 0/10
