do not bother watching this film
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I worked on this film for nine weeks as Elliott's stand-in. It was the first and last job i had in the film industry.

Even though I got to know all the actors and crew - Even though I worked up to 16 hours a day for nine weeks- Even though my name appears in the credits as a PA Even though I expected to have a biased opinion-

-I can't even watch the whole thing, this film truly sucks, and not in the good way - you know, films that are so bad, their good. Not this one - this is a truly awful piece of crap. It never made it to theaters, TV or rental. I found it on Amazon, bought it for $4, watched about 1 hour of it, checked the credits for my name and stuck it up on the shelf (forever)

The idiot that gave this 10 stars really skewed the rating which, without that vote would be a 1.5 at best. They should have a 0 star rating for films like this.
