Sorry Ernest...
7 February 2006 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie as a joke. It turns out that the joke was on me. This movie is the most boring film I have seen since 'Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future.' It has a pretty strong cast with Robert Mitchum and Ernest Borgnine but unfortunately for them, they can't save this picture.

Hoodwinked, as it is called over here in Australia is about a group of old people who con insurance companies, hence the title. It's also about a kidnapping I think? I didn't really bother to focus. To be honest, I wish I never wasted my time and money on it.

The best review of this film can be summed up very briefly. I was watching it for what seemed two hours and it turned out to be thirty minutes.

Don't bother. Sorry Ernest...
