Yes. lets give RAVE reviews on how GREAT of a movie this is! YES! Come ON, i'd learn much more, be more entertained and gain a greater I.Q. by watching teletubbies AGAIN AGAIN AND AGAIN! People like this should stop making movies and have troubles looking at themselves in the mirror without being disgusted and ashamed of the great mistake they have done to mankind. STOP! before you hurt again.
