Get your lobotomy first, THEN see this fractured flick!
2 July 2005 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Wildly uneven acting and directing seemingly presumes that the movie audience has already had their own 'transorbital' lobotomies before witnessing this cranial-comedic mess!

Michelle Williams ("The Baxter") continues as 'indie princess' in another film that's beneath her talents as an actress. Why Hollywood has failed to discover her we'll never know but if she keeps making movies like this one she may never get found.

First-time writer-director Richard Ledes fails in both departments and somehow manages to make even the usually reliable 'Meat Loaf' turn in a substandard, way over-the-top performance.

Beware this one and fans of the actors should wait for the DVD which probably won't be long in coming ... you've been warned!
