Painfully Directionless
6 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poignant films will ask (or show) a few powerful dramatic questions, then at least try and find a resolution to them before the end of the story. Even if the question is not definitively answered, at least an attempt is made. This film on the other hand, seems to be intended as nothing more than a trivial barrage of random "tragedies" effecting characters so shallow, that their trials and tribulations are impossible to even remotely sympathize with, no matter how familiar they may seem. I honestly cant remember when I last saw a film this direction less, my sympathies to anyone forced to sit through it in its entirety.
