Sominex on a movie reel. I can't think of a better way to describe this stinker.
14 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

My friend and I went out to see this movie and I never thought I'd fall asleep during a Joe Pesi movie but this was one of those times. This movie was so boring, and so pointless. It had no plot or story that I remember.

By the time the movie ended I could hardly keep my head up. Nearing the end of the movie I was yawning and almost ready to fall asleep. My friend asked me if I wanted to leave the theater and I said "no let's wait until the end." I'm sorry I waited so long to leave.

Don't waste your time with this movie because I'm sorry I didn't get out of the theater when I had the chance to.
