Another predictable subject of a bet story
26 September 2011 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This is a very predictable story about a woman being the subject of a bet between two men, a story that has been told in films 1000 times. Here they don't even try to create some nuance to it, resulting in a boring screenplay. The acting is less than average, there is no nudity, nothing really attractive about this one. The beautiful Natasha Lyonne is what attracted me to this film, but we get to see her only in a cheap restaurant waitress uniform. What is most amazing is that it won 4 awards at the Monaco International film festival. So pay no attention to that. Running this screenplay by a good writer could have made it a worthwhile film to see.
