Bad script, bad direction = bad acting , bad movie
I couldn't wait for this movie to end. Lot's of scenes with one character "sneaking" up on another and then a load sound to make you jump. The story was really lame and predictable. I think Robert De Niro and Greg Kinnear are both fine actors but it seemed like neither one believed in this movie and just gave up. This is the only movie that I've seen Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (the mother) and Cameron Bright (the son) in, and I'll try not to hold it against them . It was very simply a very bad script and it appeared that the direction of the actors was seriously lacking. This is one of the worse movies I've seen in quite a while. I usually only post my remarks when I think a movie is really outstanding or really stinky. This one is especially stinky.
1/10 (a total waste of time)
