I want two hours of my life back.
15 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie is the worst waste of celluloid that I've seen in a long time. The 'acting' is atrocious. I cringe with every word that this Martha woman says. Was there even an audition? Or did they just pick random people off the streets, feeding them with 'dreams' of getting into Hollywood? Perhaps if some of these people actually learned how to act, this movie would be more entertaining. No, instead the director spends hours giving us two people who have no idea how to act.

Second, the plot. What the…? That's a plot? What, men with fake IDs? Learning how to dance? Can't Martha just listen to her parents? It's embarrassing. I was too busy dozing off than paying attention.

This movie makes Raise Your Voice look like the Godfather. Take my advice; do something better with your time. I was foolish enough to watch this. I have paid the price.
