Beyond horrible
16 July 2005 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on Lifetime the other day. It was another typical Lifetime film: poorly-acted, sadly-directed, and centering around a woman (in this case, not in a very flattering way). This movie tells the story of a guy named Dennis who, for no apparent reason, makes up stories about his life and such... apparently cuz he's CRAZZZZZZZZY. He was just recently released out of a mental institution for some unknown reason (which is explained later) and he thinks that secret agents are after him and stuff (which is never explained later -- what?!). He's obviously retarded, but he falls in love with some ugly girl, and then she "lures him into a web of deceit" or something.

Really... It's all never explained. It's pointless and laughably so. Almost child-like in its presentation, and you get the feeling that halfway through, the script was completely changed. No character is ever developed enough, and it's way too soulless and pointless. What was even the point? Stupid. The most compelling parts of the film are, frustratingly, never explained. Just a bad movie.
