Waste of Time
10 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'll preface this by saying I have never seen an Edward Burns film, not for any particular reason, I've just never seen one.

After this movie, I doubt I'll bother seeing another.

It wasn't a BAD movie, just poorly cast and rather pointless.

If this was written by the main actor in order to show that he can act and that he's a viable choice for films, then I could see the point of this movie. Otherwise it's a story that's been told a million times before, completely predictable and cliché.

The main actor isn't bad, just poorly cast. He's completely unbelievable as a radio personality or as a romantic lead, he looks and sounds 14.

My other minor gripe is that I don't know who this movie is really for. If it's a romance designed to appeal to women, then the main female lead is either poorly written or poorly directed. She's completely uninterested in the guy until he says he has a fiancée, then she's in full on flirt mode, very unappealing.

So overall, don't waste your time, unless your a huge Ed Burns fan apparently.
