I had to stop watching
23 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, let me say that I didn't watch the whole movie, so my opinion could be skewed, but I doubt it. That said, I'm posting this just to warn certain people not to waste their time. Despite seeing plenty of bad movies, I've never had to stop watching one before The Cradle. I watched about a third of the movie before I couldn't stand the absolute tedium, and had to shut it off, concerned with my mental health.

I tried to watch this movie a while ago, and don't remember any real plot, and the sad thing is, it's really not because I've forgotten it. It just didn't exist, or at least not until halfway into the movie..

I've given this movie the lowest score possible, as unlike normal bad movies, you can't even make fun of it and give it pity points for being a good laugh.

If you do choose to endure this film, you're in for long, dull scenes of dreary dialog and lifeless actors shuffling around as though they've been drugged. Good luck.
