The scenery saved the script, in this viewer's opinion...
5 April 2003 | by (Living Room) – See all my reviews

What is that great saying? They did the best with what they had.

Unfortunately, this felt the case with this movie as well, with not much character definition and too many sidelines which failed to be explored. We did get the obligatory tit/sex shot-for those that must need that kind of stuff in their movies.. ho hum!

Fortunately the show improved midway through when what appeared to be a minor character, Simon (played well by young Canadian, Tobias Mehler), took on more work and brought a level of enjoyment (for this viewer) to the otherwise predictable script. Some good lines were not wasted when delivered properly and the show had potential, but seemed to 'get buried' a little too deep. The scenery certainly improved the script!

Having said all that, I'm still glad I bought the movie for my collection. It's one of those 'switch off and just watch' movies.
