Although the movie wasn't all bad, I was somewhat distracted by those few atrocious parts. There were scenes in this movie that I couldn't even believe someone had honestly written in the last 25 years with the hopes that it would create "tension". In any case, most of the events are unbelievable, at best.
Paul Sorvino did a great job, but his was the only acting that had a whole lot of dimension. The other characters seemed to have their lines spit out of a computer.
I will say, however, that there are some very hilarious scenes in the movie. The only problem is that I doubt they were intended to be funny at all; it's more likely that they were originally intended to be very intense. I don't recommend this movie if you're looking for something that is unpredictable.
