One of the worst
6 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to believe that these people took the time and money to make such a bad movie. The premise could have been good - but it was ruined by terrible script writing and casting. So much was wrong with it, that I kept yelling at the screen on my TV. I kept hoping it would get better and watched the whole thing. One of the worst I have ever seen. No one - not one soul on this earth would have reacted as this character did when given $5 million and a penthouse. Most of the movie was boring in between being ridiculous to the point of disgust. Every line that the lead said and everything she did was unbelievable and stupid. It's also hard to believe that Armand Assanti and Betty White read this script before agreeing to act in this movie.
