This is the worst movie I have ever seen.
27 February 2000 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

There is no point in going to see this movie, if one could consider this a movie. It was more like a documentary but threw in mini-plots which had nothing to do with the rest of the film. I gave this movie a 1 because that was the lowest I could give. If there were negative numbers to give it, I would. I went to a free screening of this movie and it was not worth the money I paid.
