Robotic acting
17 October 2004 | by (New York, N.Y.) – See all my reviews

Tracy Lords has one expression and speaks and acts as lifeless as someone who has been drugged. Additionally, the character is not very sharp on the uptake. Taking her son to the room where his father was killed and when he starts having nightmares, she is upset and tells him that she doesn't know what's going on with him, but in effect, he should snap out of it. She leaves her son alone at night in a hotel room and goes up to the roof. She slaps her son, he runs away and instead of immediately running after him she lingers to speak to her lover. This is the only time in my life that I wanted to reach through the screen and ......... I don't know who was the worst actor, she or Andrew Heckler, they were lifeless. This is not a movie, it's an 'ovie'. The principals in this movie were the worst I've ever seen. The only credible actors were the motley crew of black characters and the daffy hotel manager, who it seems was the director of the movie. Don't waste your 2 hrs, thank God I didn't pay for this, I saw it on TV.
