almost an almost good movie
7 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

one word. background music. this is a good low-budget Scott Bakula film if you were ever looking for one. some parts remind me of quantum leap. and boy do i love me some quantum leap, which is why i saw this one in the first place. i don't want to spoil the movie, but there is way too much background music. it's way too loud and in a good portion of the movie. the worst part about that is, it's the same tune the whole time! it was probably on the computer they edited this movie with. this being said, Scott Bakula was funny in this. there were a few times i almost lost it. if you were get a chance to see this movie, use your own judgment. i would not recommend this over a good film to watch. it's a risk you have to be willing to take.
