Don't...just don't...
7 August 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Headline says it all really, and in the interest of saving people from wasting any more time on this movie than they absolutely have to, the headline should suffice really.

There are plenty of things I'd rather spend my time doing rather than watching this again. Things like watching the grass grow, watching a slow motion recording of paint drying or why not watch a grape as it turns into a raisin.

The main story isn't all bad, although it contains nothing new really. Acting was terrible pretty much through and through, even though some actors are worse than others. Dialogue is poor and often not at all convincing. All put together, there are many scenes in this movie that makes you unsure of whether to laugh or cry.
