User Reviews

This movie is the worst movie I have ever seen.
26 October 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie should not classify as cinema. Although it is over 10 years old now, it should never, ever have gotten funding, and is a blight on the Australian Film Industry, which is now producing such brilliant films as "The Dish"

The Actors cannot act, The music is.. to be blunt, not music, the storyline is completely nonexistent and is a struggle to sit through.

Do not watch this film. It is a complete waste of your time.
