Oh my lord! Who would want that???!!



That says it all! See, when I rented this crap this past weekend (for a date!) somebody in the video store actually said "oh my lord! who would want that?" when they discovered it had been rented. Now I see why! The acting is TERRIBLE! The plot is pointless and predictable! "B" movies usually get a bad rap, but I've always been a fan of them nonetheless. But even I could not find the good in this garbage. My girlfriend said (when it was finally over!), "get that garbage out of my vcr!". And I don't blame her! Some clown even compared it to "Copland" with Sylvester Stalone. Trust me, Copland is much, much better.
