Worst James Brolin movie ever don't watch this
28 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please don't watch this piece of nonsense. It's got a terrible story and a screenplay that makes no sense. The dialog is stilted and disjointed.

It starts off like an Alzheimer's story about Joanna Cassidy's illness then just ends up in a strange family drama. With father and son both having slept with this young girl.

The relationships are so weird especially Corin Nemec's character with this 17 year old girl who looks much older. Why they treat Corin's character worse than his brother isn't explained either.

The ending is terrible leaving crucial plot lines unresolved and giving no explanation for things then went on before.

Absurd!
