There is a reason the IMDb viewers rate it 4 stars . . . out of 10
7 May 2011 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I rated it 2, but still, before seeing it, Netflix viewers gave it a little over 3 out of 5 and it was predicted it would be on a 2.9 scale out of 5 for me.

But either way, I watched it, looking for a suspense film and hoping this would be it. It sadly is an extremely boring film with very, very little suspense. It is quite possibly more of a black comedy than anything, but boring at that. This movie, almost 2 hours long, really good have been made into a short movie, 30-45 minutes long and cut out the boredom. I understand how sometimes movie lag in certain points as there is plot development that must occur, however, the spans of nothingness in this movie were not filled with plot development, but instead filled with . . . well, nothingness.

Acting in the movie was actually quite good and I think considering what they had to work with, nearly every actor in the film did a great job.

There is certainly no thought provoking intellect at work in the storyline, the musical score was non-existent and the movie ends in a certain kind of humorous frustration at the waste that just occurred.

Spare yourself on this one, read a few reviews and the watch the film in fast forward. You will get the gist of the movie and be better off.
