I saw some thing better then this, when i threw up in the toilet.
3 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Congrats alive or dead, you are tied for the worst movie i have ever seen, and you are tied with "i know who killed me" with lindsay lohan. I don't even know where to begin, i am so so confused with this movie i have never watched a movie that made me feel this way so many things don't add up, i have seen better acting in a 2nd grade play The start sucked and middle and end was worse, there were so many different story lines going on in this movie its like they took 3 really bad movies and made a super mega meca bad movie i know you don't know who i am but please do me a favor and don't ever ever watch this movie don't let your kids watch it either because it will make them stupid and you don't want that.
