So bad on so many levels.
11 December 2010 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

What could have been and should have been a very good story became a horrible mess, with a soundtrack which could make the ears bleed and performances which can make the eyes bleed.

Editing, coloring, timing, and overall casting was such a letdown that to turn it off was the best result.

I understand that small budgets mean less technology and production values, but had this a larger budget, nothing would have been the better.

It performed as bad from the first 2 minutes in and just stayed there for the entire period until closing credits. Dialogue, story development, characters and emotions were so misguided that I actually felt that watching feminine hygiene commercials would be about as entertaining.

Just so bad, so many reasons and a solid reason to watch something else.
