Underestimated
12 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I, myself, thought the movie was incredible. A prisoner falling in love with his dentist would probably be a turn off to people who haven't seen it, but it was surprisingly exceptional. Especially the sex scene in the bathroom. I've always had a little something for Tim Roth, but now it's grown. It was a very passionate and intense part of the movie and I really enjoyed it and I think you will too. If anything, it was the best movie I've ever seen. Big Tim Roth fan or not it is a must see and always will be, so suck it up Johnny Depp (if that is how you spell his name) and sit back and watch the show. Some popcorn wouldn't hurt though.
