No expectations,no disappointments
25 April 2005 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

If your a U2 fan watch this film. If your a Trainspotting fan watch this film,(Kelly Macdonald has a small part). If your that 1 Lauren Holly fan out there watch this film. If your an average viewer, i advice you to watch this film but don't expect too much.I never heard of this film ,found it at the video store and was able to get it for free. it has really cool camera shots and has a fashionable groove to it however the script is the major disappointment in the film.The dialogue is somewhat cheesy if not pretentious.And the lead character played by Dorf seems to be an obvious replacement for Ewan Mecregor or that guy from Momento. Overall,if you don't have any expectations for this film you wont be disappointed. Don't buy it. Don't rent it. BUT if your buddy has it watch it.
