What a waste of time
11 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was billed as a comedy drama, it was neither. It was 1 hour 41 minutes of shear boredom.

Bad acting, bad screenplay an all round bad movie. How this drivel got a 6.2 score is unbelievable.

Do yourself a favour and steer clear of this lemon.

This surely had to be a straight to DVD release as there is no way this thing could have done anything at the cinemas.

It is basically a movie about absolutely nothing.

The strained continuous crying scenes were pitiful to watch. The characters were one dimensional unconvincing, and just made you dislike them altogether.

Some of the more fantastic scenes involved character talking to each other without any audio other than music. Extremely annoying and must be just there to pad this rubbish out a bit.
