yes, the movie is that bad!
28 October 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is my first comment on IMDb. I registered here right after I came from the cinema, just to be able to say this: the movie is horrible! The only thing that kept me 'till the end was the ppl making funny comments during the movie. And the cool girl sitting next to me. The plot is horrible, directing is horrible, music is..., ah srry, there is no music, just some radio background noises from time to time. The acting is impossible to watch because of the stupidity of the plot. All the movie is made only from embarrassing and idiotic scenes. I don't understand why this movie had to be done and how can someone ever enjoy it. And why romanian directors are lacking completely that thing called imagination.
