Don't waste your time
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the top 10 worst films off all time. If you value your time, don't bother with this movie. If you have lots of free time, still don't bother with this movie. I sure wish I could get 90 minutes of my life back.

The movie was a train wreck. Slower than molasses, but worse yet the story line is all over the map. Not to mention it just plain doesn't make any sense.

Trust me when I say... spend 90 minutes doing dishes or cleaning the house instead. At least there will be something to show for it in the end.
