The over all plot might have made a great movie if only it was told properly . Instead it is full of bad timings and bad voice casting . A character that is supposed to be funny and easy-going has such a bored male voice that delivers the jokes like death warrants . There are quite a few good ideas spoiled purely by bad timing .
Most of the good ideas I mentioned are not too new . We have seen them over and over in many movies . But they could have made it work . These ideas are just forced on the viewer in the worst possible moments that they become ridiculously funny .
The saving grace is the music by Stephen McKeon whose 'The Way To The Stars' in the credits truly brings out all that the movie failed to do .
