Trivia

The flashback scenes were filmed one year before principal photography began. This was done so that they would have the footage of Albert (Zachary Redden) before he got too old to play the part. See more »

Quotes

Karen: [watching Parker dip cheesestick into sauce] Parker, no double dipping. That's really gross.
Parker: But I thought you like sloppy seconds, Karen!
Karen: No, that's Mark. So share your little stick with him and leave that bowl alone.

I signed up tonight just to warn people of this movie.
14 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie does not even deserve the 1 I am giving it but I have to put something to write this. I am not a professional in any way not even as a critic. However, I do LOVE movies - all kinds - and have developed quite a pallet. I am open to watching ANY type of movie and will give ANY movie a chance. Unfortunately that's why I watched this movie. I have my preferences for movies I actually find GOOD but one of my favorite types of movies to watch are the horribly bad; bad story, acting, whatever. It's amusing. THIS movie, was beyond even that. I'm surprised I had the self control to sit through this movie without being strapped down and my eyes forced open like in Clockwork Orange. This is BY FAR THE! WORST! MOVIE! I have EVER! EVER! SEEN! I have never said that sentence as strongly or been livid enough to actually write a review like this but let that stand for how atrocious this movie is. The acting was forced, very amateur, uncomfortable - for both viewer and actors it seemed, and horribly - I would like to repeat and emphasize - HORRIBLY directed. I wanted to address this first because I've seen movies where the acting was bad, but I was able to overlook that because I could tell the script and possibly even the direction/production were good, but this falls short on every level. The worst of all was the main character, the villain, who I amused myself only slightly thinking he had the acting quality of a wrestler only to find out to my horror upon reading one of the reviews that he actually was! As I said already, I can deal with bad acting if the script and direction, sometimes even if it is just one, are decent enough. But the story so stupid. I apologize for using such a juvenile term but that's really the only way to accurately describe it and it's much more polite than what I want to say. I am seriously tempted to write Brooks Benjamin (writer, director, producer) just to find out what he was thinking the entire time this project developed. I don't even want to talk about it anymore because I am that angry and just shocked and dumbfounded that something this awful could actually be created and viewed by so many people and written about - even jokingly

  • the way it has been on here.


Long rant short - DO! NOT! EVER! EVER! EVER! WATCH THIS MOVIE! OR LET ANYONE YOU KNOW OR LOVE WATCH IT!
