Viewable. And unexpectedly, enough so to write about.
Usually with a movie like this: after five to ten minutes I would be fast-forwarding through the rest of it, and mark it down to being watched. But for some reason I stuck with it, and every few minutes it seemed to get better. Eventually it didn't seem too bad. And when it ended I thought it was all right. The leading actor . . . from time to time he was acceptable. But everyone else was okay, probably because they played odd characters who kept my attention. The movie is not as predictable as you might think. Try it.
