Worst acting. Ever.
3 November 2002 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I know this is a made for TV movie, and the acting in made for TV movies is usually sub-par, but it's absolutely horrendous in this film. Sometimes acting gets so bad it's laughable, but in this case, it's so bad it's sickening.
