Lacking in every respect: story, dialog, acting, humor
5 March 2006 | by (Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It is boring to death, the plot is uninteresting (if this can be even called a plot), and it tries to make up for its really bad dialog by putting as many references to having sex and f/s-words into each and every sentence. An additional problem is that there is no person in this film the viewer can develop sympathy for: Miss Jones is depicted as just too dumb to really feel compassion for, and Mr. Darcy is a block of ice. So the viewer is simply left alone with some story of two people he doesn't care a pence for. I thought this was being advertised as a somewhat funny movie - but honestly, David Letterman's horrible hosting of the Oscars was hilarious compared to this "movie". Don't see it - it's a waste of time and money.
