I'D RATHER STICK NEEDLES IN MY EYES!
21 September 2002 | by (Malibu, Ca) – See all my reviews

My goodness! Let me catch my breath and say that all of the people who gave a critique prior to this one, either were crew on this film or they must have thought that "FREDDIE GOT FINGERED" was a classic work of art! Need I say more? Jekyll Island was the worst film I have ever seen. The absolute worst! The story was painfully trite! The lead Don Mogavero is constantly in frame! What was the director thinking? This guy not only isn't appealing but he cannot act! Please stop writing and acting in films Mr. Mogavero and as for the Director? Who is Ken Dupuis? Thank God we will never know. Obviously Mr. Dupuis has seen one too many episodes of Dallas and Dynasty in the 80's! Thank God this one stopped directing. As for the female lead...she over acted so strongly that honey was dripping from her, she too saw too many evening soaps. Too much drama with no story and simply pathetic. I made Blockbuster give me my money back and they actually did! The manager agreed to because so many others had complained before me regarding this rental. It's not a "B" movie it's an "W" movie for your "Wasted Time." One would be better off renting anything but this one. ANYTHING!
