WHAT WAS THAT?
14 June 2000 | by (México) – See all my reviews

I couldn't stop wondering what had I just seen when this movie ended. It's one of the poorest and most badly constructed movies I've ever seen in my life. How could this script be approved in the first place anyway? It completely lacks any sort of narrative quality, and the structure is just nonsense. What a lack of talent.
