Unforgettable
25 February 2002 | by (Boulder, CO) – See all my reviews

I'll never forget this movie because whenever someone asks me "what's the worst movie you've ever seen?" I always have a quick answer (although no one has ever seen this apart from the one friend of mine who was also duped into seeing this). This is like a cruel hell being forced to watch this movie, every new person that comes on the screen annoys you to new levels. Simply the worst time I've ever had or hope to have watching a movie.
