This is a very dull film.
29 December 1998 | by (Valley Forge, PA) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, this film is not worth wasting time on. Despite a good cast and the occasional humorous moment, the film is almost unwatchable due to its slow pace and familiar plot. Watch an X-Files episode instead.
