Dreadful
25 October 2004 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

This is really one of the absolute worst films I have ever seen, and I do not mean that hyperbolically. I came into the film with fairly low expectations -- and even *they* weren't met.

All the characters are weakly drawn. There is a paucity of conflict throughout. Scenes go by with little purpose or even base entertainment value. The writing is dull to bad; a structural and dramatic mess. And the film-making itself was just awful. Things like a softball game and a dance are shot so dully, the life seemed literally sucked out of these "easy" scenes. Like the filmmaker didn't even care about trying to make these visually engaging.

The premise seemed like shooting fish in a barrel. The fact that the film failed even to live up to the clichés of a drama like this is remarkable. The protagonist is vaguely defined and motivated. (Though "Zachary Taylor" tries hard to make it work, there's nothing for him to work with.) I didn't care about any of the characters. The "bookend" scenes with Elliot Gould are simply absurd.

This is a very bad movie. Not even enjoyably so.
