A pointless and disappointing movie

I watched this movie and found it to be extremely disappointing. There were one or two slightly humorous scenes, the plot was very slight. The story revolved around what happened when Diane Lane's character & her husband when they buy a new gun and cross path's with their neighbour "Skippy". I kept waiting for something interesting to happen but it just didn't. The acting was decent enough but the pace of the movie was very slow & uninteresting. The character of Lane's husband played by Stephen Collins was extremely annoying. I also saw Happiness which was mentioned in one of the reviews of this movie, I was disgusted with it and did'nt find it to my taste at all.

I personally thought this one one of Diane Lane's worst movies. 3/10
