the most awful kind of a terrible movie, 2 August 2008
Author: Brandy from United States

Even with 2 bottles of warm Vodka in my belly I couldn't enjoy this lousy movie. I had to smoke a joint and constantly play with myself to keep myself entertained through the whole ordeal.

Why is there no music in this movie?

Why is it filmed with no filters on the camera? The only other kinds of movies that don't use filters are soap operas ans porno movies?

Was the producer who did this, was he a high school student or what?

what was with those cheap costumes?

why did the characters spend so much time just talking about their nieces and nephews and farms and barns? It's Just Stupid

why was that nurse going around having sex with those hospital patients?

Someone needs to consider actually having a plot the nest time they want to make a movie.

I rather swallow lysol down my throat, and choke myself raw than to ever sit through this terrible move again. - because it would be less painful
