The worst movie ever
3 June 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is probably the worst movie I've ever seen. It's so predictable and you know from the first time you see Juliet what's going to happen. Besides Joe's actions in the movie are so stupid that they could never have happened in real life. Not even the ending could save this movie. Plus it is so long!!!! it's really bad.
