I watched this from start to finish. It was painful to say the least. When I saw the performances by John Leguizamo, Florencia Lozano, Wanda De Jesus and have to wonder if these people could even act like they needed to have a bowel movement after a box of laxatives.
I've seen better performances from babies acting like they were hurt throwing a tantrum.
