A cry for help
22 March 2000 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie on Monday (3-20-00) I couldn't believe what some people do. It was a very sad movie! I don't want to say to much about it just in case someone is reading this and hasn't seen it yet. But who ever has seen this...people can be disgusting (not everyone). This movie made me extremely mad and the situation should have been handled differently. Anyone that has seen this movie before knows what I am talking about. I usually talk to the movie as if the people are hearing me, but I have never yelled so much at the television as much as I did that Monday. I really do hope that that guy burns in hell. Excuse me but I can't help but feel anger towards people and their sick ways like that. Thank you for reading please let me know how you feel on this movie and what had happened.
