10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big comment contributor. I just had to with this.

This movie was so pathetic on so many levels, I scarcely know where to begin.

Plot – filled with holes and contrived.

Acting – I expected better from Devane and Young,perhaps even they couldn't bring life to such poor character development. The other actors are unknowns and their acting is on par with a student film.

Normally I would not have finished the DVD, but it got to the point where I had to continue just to see where the lame plot would lead. How surprised I was to find that it lead nowhere but through some hoops.
