Worst thing thats ever happened to me
4 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I feel dumber since seeing this movie ! I like Vinnie Jones and have enjoyed many of his movies but this is like finding money then realising its fake. It hurt my feelings to watch this its dumbing down gone mad !

it was like bathing in acid with open sores, I almost died watching this movie. im not even sure it was made for DVD or for TV it seemed like it started finished and said nothing ! I watched the whole thing and struggled to find a plot !

I beg you not to watch it ! no imagination no writing ability no acting skills

AWFUL
