going nowhere fast
11 January 2010 | by (japan) – See all my reviews

this movie seemed like it was going to have a point but it never got close to reigning that point in, whatever it was. Dead son, brother, ex, affair with married man, fat guy depressed, neglected wife and some really weird angle about a guy grooming the brother for a gay relationship which I guess wasn't really that weird cos none of the story elements seemed to be leading to any overall picture so why should this out of nowhere element be any different. I should have looked at the ratings spread before wasting 90 mins on this because with almost 50% voting a 10 and the rest in the low figures chances are this is a rigged vote and this isn't a life changing great movie. Give this one a miss unless you're related to or are friends with the cast and crew. It was pretty well filmed and edited, acting was passable mostly, and the director could go on to do good things, but this one is very average. much room for improvement.
