Complete rubbish
4 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

I've seen many terrible tv-movies, but this one's probably the worst so far. I just cannot say one good thing about this movie; I'd rather watch tv-shop for two hours than this one again.

Should you still choose to watch it, remember you were warned.
