Worst of the worst
5 October 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie as part of a pre-release audience focus group. And this was the only time I've ever seen or heard of a mass audience walk-out on a free screening and forego the $50 focus group fee. it was THAT bad. Audience members were pushing pollsters aside on their way out, others could be seen to be writing profanities in big block letters on their questionnaires.

This was one of those movies that deliberately strives to be bad through self-mockery, but it didn't even succeed at campiness. Not funny-bad, just painfully, excruciatingly, AWFUL.

If these other reviews are to be believed, the movie must have been re-written, re-filmed, re-edited and re-tooled beyond recognition.
