I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone!
17 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Even though I went to see the movie with great expectations, I didn't like the movie at all!!. I thought it was boring as it could be and except from the photography, everything else was worse than mediocre!! I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone!
