Do not waste your precious time!
2 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

The only reason I watched this movie was as a result of a combination of channel surfing, eating breakfast, and procrastinating. Now part of me wishes I hadn't wasted my time trying to figure out why on earth this movie was even made by actually sitting through the entire thing waiting for the pay off and another part of me is glad I saw it because it gives hope to all the wannabe screenwriters out there. The plot is ridiculous (and not in a good way), the characters lack any kind of substance or depth, and the cameos are not worth it at all. As a matter of fact I find myself wondering how the director even got the cameos... What incredible favor did these people owe and to whom? The writer? The director? The producer(s)? And the truly sad thing is it seemed the script was written entirely as a result of these connections with celebs in order to produce a movie with cameos. That whole reasoning just disgusts me. Whatever happened to just wanting to tell a good story? I mean, they don't all have to be Casablanca, but even Ferris Bueller's Day Off is akin to Gone with the Wind in comparison with this trite piece of trash.
