Braindead Entertainment
21 December 2000 | by (Tacoma, WA) – See all my reviews

Nothing I can write about this film (and I use that term loosely) can accurately describe how awful it is.

The other user comments were right, although I feel that if I spend that much effort writing about this film I will regret, not only the time I wasted watching it, but even more time on this internet site.

The acting, the story, and the direction were pathetic. I suppose (and I'm not in the film industry), but those things fall on the director's head. Especially since he wrote the script.

What kind of message did this film send? Grandfather's unite, sacrifice your gransons b/c we're too old, frail, and afraid to do things for ourselves!

Bad, bad filmmaking.
