Total Waste of Money & Time
18 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would rather poke myself in the eye with broken glass than sit through this trash again.

I've never felt more violated by anything in my whole life. It was insulting to me as an audience. Definitely two hours of my life that I want back.

I'm tempted to write the director and ask for my money back. I'm astonished anyone would pay to have such incoherent sewage made or distributed.

I watched the making of the movie just to see if I could get an explanation or a reason. Nope. Just some Hollywood BS about the artistic and creative quality of not working with a script. It is compared to performance art.

I've seen a lot of movies. This one takes the cake for the worst I've ever seen. The only fair thing to do is put a big warning on the box or anywhere it's sold online.
