Trailer got me in ,but movie didn't pull me in
25 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The trailer made the movie seem GREAT!!However it was LONG & DRAWN OUT to say the least!If the plot was thicker , and there wasn't SO much down time between interesting scenes , it would have been OK.You really don't get to feel like you 'know' the characters very well and it was so long that there wasn't nearly enough in the movie to keep me interested for even half the time!I would watch it as a Lifetime movie , although sad to say I don't think it would cut it!Honestly, my friend & I had completely HAD IT by the time it neared the end and got up & left before it was even over , and we had been watching it for nearly 2hours!
