A miracle of film-making!
21 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A maybe slightly appealing trailer, and a screening in a "respectable" movie theatre where the factors that led me to that mouse trap.

I felt absolutely guilty and sorry for the soul I dragged to watch this movie with me. Not often is it when you get the chance to watch such a worthless movie in the theaters! I witnessed a miracle! HOW and most importantly WHY did this movie get released in the theaters????????

It is so bad it should be illegal! There should be some kind of regulation that protects moviegoers from watching such a terrible, pointless, ... movie and and on top of it pay for it.

I don't know which was the worst: the acting, the editing, the "writing" (if there was any!), the cinematography???? It seems like a bunch of friends were having beers and made a joke about how "hi on power" a doorman can get! And it's true but it's far from being enough to build a movie around it. It becomes obvious that the theme is not important enough nor funny to carry on a movie when the "plot" goes to weird scenes that have nothing to do with anything and still with that the repetitiveness is exhausting and not funny at all!

Save your money and time!!!
