Not Half Bad
18 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was by no means a great film, but it was better than I expected. I only watched it for the hot Dean Cain and adorable De Rossi, but it had a pretty good story line. It was cheesy, but it kept me enterained and that's the purpose of a movie. If you have a night with nothing to do, I highly recomend The Glow.
