Enjoy the Ride
20 July 2003 | by (Tinley Park, IL) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film! It drew me in and kept me watching. To see these characters go through the changes they go through was truly amazing to me. Monet Mazur was geogeous and Carmine Giovinazzo did a great job along with Norbert Weisser who plays his character to the edge. I thought the film was well cast, the acting was superb, the locations were really nice and the story original. Just sit back and enjoy the ride because this one is worth the trip. I give it thumbs up.
