Pleeeeeease.Let it end.
6 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What do you get if you cross several average actors,a 'witty' self-aware, self deprecating script and a bag full of clichés,acknowledged as being clichés by the script,making them super clichés?

Robbed of an hour and a half,that's what.

I've seen some bad films and often you can take the good from them and be pretty content.This film in no way offers anything even remotely close to redemption.....actually that's not entirely fair,it does.It ends.

This movie should be used in a court of law to substantiate and complete the argument for euthanasia.

Sticking to the old adage about ending positively I did take something from this film......I learnt never to go anywhere near any future project with anyones name attached from these credits.

One star is the minimum I'm able to give this,but it's a little like saying that Hitler was just a bit naughty.
