Thought it was an infomercial
31 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was flipping channels today and came across this movie. I stopped for about 10 minutes and figured that it must be an infomercial. After some further flipping I went back and it was still there. I had to see what this strange thing was, and found it in the local listing.

This may just be the worst movie ever made. Each scene lasts less than a minute. It looks like it was shot on someones home camcorder. The dialog sounds like, well, a commercial! The closest thing that I could relate it to would be a daytime soap only not sexy.

If this were an infomercial for the KSDS then I would say, "bravo! great public service announcement." But, unfortunately, it appears to be a film.
