The Horror.
24 October 2003 | by (Newport Beach, California) – See all my reviews

This is one really pathetic movie. Snobby movie dorks across the world, like my self, probably get more entertainment out of it than anyone. If you take this movie as a play on "tv movies" then it makes it's mark. Unfortunately the people who made this were pretty serious. As for those of you wondering why anyone that finds this movie so horrible would finish it? Well it's more or less a sickness I have. Once I start a movie I have to finish it. Admittedly, in this case it was rather hard to do suchly.
