Trivia

When Tom is watching TV just before a dinner plate mysteriously falls and shatters in his kitchen, we see and hear a commercial being played on his television. The muffled, unintelligent voice on the commercial is that of the film's Sound Editor, Benjamin Allison. A quick fix by Allison to create audio for a fake prescription drug commercial. See more »

Just...Don't Watch It
9 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly don't have to much to say.

This is reaaaally terrible. I first rented it because it looked interesting and some of the best movies I have ever seen that isn't dumb-looking was unknown to me. So I picked it up and then later I checked IMDb and noticed the bad ratings but I had optimism. I watched it....yeah.

The acting is either really dull or really dumb. The characters aren't interesting. The story could work out if they made it well...WORK OUT. It seriously is not worth watching. Forget this movie. Walk away from it or you'll regret it. ....Trust me.
