I bought this DVD out of curiosity and wasn't expecting much after reading the reviews on here - some scathing, some ridiculously gushing but I have to say I enjoyed it. It's fun, fast paced and not too long. I admit some of the enjoyment may have been in seeing MB with his shirt off again (it's been a long time since Terminator). Weaknesses are a couple of places where MB's acting is wooden, like the scene where he first meets Annie - maybe this is a consequence of directing himself? Also, the dialogue is occasionally unconvincing, for instance when the girls get together and discuss men. Mostly it works though - I even laughed out loud once at the black humour. The soundtrack was mostly average, but with a couple of good bits to entertain us while we are driving through the woods. It was a nice touch to show all of the crew at the end, including the dog. The important thing about this movie is that it's fun to watch, and if MB directed another movie, I would most likely want to see it.
