23 February 2011 | by (.) – See all my reviews

Dull, boring, pointless and badly written film about nothing.... The film is very slow paced I kept waiting for something meaningful to happen, but the end credits put a frustrating conclusion to my wait.

Acting was very bad by the entire cast except Jennifer Connelly who was still a pleasure to watch. But of course one actress, no matter how great she is, can't single handedly save a movie as dull as this. Jennifer Connelly aside, the entire thing looked no better than a high school project made using a cheap camera over a weekend.

I never advice against watching a movie, and this film is no exception. Just make sure you watch it immediately after you wake up with some coffee in hand, otherwise you'd be sleeping less than half way through!
