Not Recommended.
2 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was absolutely awful - bad acting combined with way too many showy camera shots, and a storyline that was hard to follow and made very little sense. I only watched through to the end with hope for something good, but was disappointed when the film came up with nothing redeeming to end the movie with. There was either overacting or underacting, and nothing was consistent. And the lines that were trying to be funny just didn't belong. The opening shots made the movie appear to be interested, but it was only a letdown from then on. I do not recommend this movie unless you are a film student looking for what not to do when making movies. This looked like the work of an overzealous film student.
