How did they ever get funding for this?
7 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is quite possibly the worst film I have ever seen. The writing is both bizarre and predictable. The film has very little flow and except for Peter Dinklage all of the performances are stiff. I sincerely hope that Bill Weiner never picks up a pen again. I really do not understand how such big names could have been involved in what is effectively an after school special. There are a few scenes that qualify as funny in a campy sort of way, but the overall effect is that of sentimental schlock. I find myself deeply ambivalent about the characters; they were simply too idiotic and immature to connect with effectively. I regret not turning this film off half-way through; it represents an hour and a half of my life that I will never get back.
