Not A Must See, But I Saw It
22 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie was not so great, but it had a good plot. The characters were funny and well-thought and the suspense was riveting. The only problem, I thought, was the ending. I don't want to give it away, so I'll just say that it wasn't what I expected. It will probably be the same for you. I give it ** out of ****.
