Fail
28 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When his journal of bright ideas is stolen, college freshman Bickford Schmeckler (Fugit) has to blanket the campus in order to locate it.

Boring slow movie.

You won't care one bit about anyone in the film.

And you'll care less about the story.

The only good thing is that it's only a hour and 15 minutes.

But the other side of that is it feels like 10 hours.

It's moronic and idiotic.

In short, it's a monumental fail.

Sort of like boiled meat.
