Awful movie
29 March 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I just sent my wife to rent a movie, since it has been me renting the movies lately. Unfortunately, she picked up this movie for us to enjoy this evening.

It's not hard to say that I regret that decision. This is one of the bottom 5 films I have EVER seen.

Lousy cast, lousy script, lousy filming. My biggest mistake was watching the whole movie. 1,5 hour lost of my life, that could be used for something more useful...

Nothing, Nothing, Absolutely nothing is good in this movie. Do not rent it! Do not buy it!

Don't do the same mistake as I did, pick the movies yourself, don't let your wife do it....
