It is just not good
10 February 2011 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I rarely bother to comment on bad movies there are so many, watching this on a snow day on Showtime I really had to wonder why this got made at all. To the people who did it, let me offer a few suggestions should they choose to try again. First buy a script from a good writer, he may even do it for free if just starting out. Without a good script nothing good can happen. Next do not cast yourself, if you are an actor others will hire you, don't waste a chance to make a good project out of vanity. The director is the key person, you must have a real one. If you can not get one with a good track record of success, then review student film projects for a new director with several great student films, you are looking for a visual story teller. His stuff will stand out, they do not grow on trees.

Having the obvious large amount of money it took to make this film it is tragic that so many young film makers struggle to find small amounts to film with, they are out there, please do not waste such resources again.
