after being subjected to about the first 15 minutes of this hot-poker-in-the-eye of a movie, i just wanted to weep. THEY SPENT 170 MILLION DOLLARS ON THIS PIECE OF JUNK?!!!!! of all the quality unfilmed scripts floating around in hollywood, some higher up at warner brothers actually looked at this script and said "Hmmmm, this is fantastic, let's make it." my faith in american studios keeps dwindling quickly................
