Absolute ********
19 January 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I don't think I have ever seen a film where the relationships, dialog and interactions between characters were so unrealistic. It boggles the mind that women would even want to spend 5 seconds around the main character, let alone sleep with him.

Likewise, the female characters are equally unrealistic. One gets the impression of a bunch of actors standing around trying to memorise lines or improvise comedy at a rehearsal.

One cannot believe their motivations for anything, or their reactions to each other, making this film utterly unwatchable.
