This movie was bad. A valiant effort but still bad.
6 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This picture is the evidence of a first time director working feverishly to fine tune his craft. I found it boring, horribly acted and visually looked liked soft core pornography one would normally find on Cinemax in the middle of the night.
