Oh my, I found something WORSE than A.I.!!!!
28 July 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It was disgusting and painful. What a waste of a cast! I swear, the audience (1/2 full) laughed TWICE in 90 minutes. This is not a lie. Do not even rent it.

Zeta Jones was just too mean to be believable.

Cusack was OK. Just OK. I felt sorry for him (the actor) in case people remember this mess.

Roberts was the same as she always is. Charming and sweet, but with no purpose. The "romance" with John was completely unbelievable.
