Such a bad movie and so disappointed in Hugh Laurie's choice in this role. Dumb plot, overacting, and boring.I only watched it because Hugh Laurie is in it. I love his face; but he made a bad choice here.
None of the characters seemed real - it's difficult to care about any of them. Shallow, self-centered and bland. This movie is pure crap.Another bad Hollywood show - meaningless and not in the least entertaining, insightful, or interesting. Wasted two hours of my life watching it.
Not sure why this review needs 10 lines before it can be submitted. How many ways can I say this was a bad show with unbelievable characters and a bad plot?
