Boring crap HBO - B "movie"
2 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not even halfway through this flick and getting so bored that I need to go and get another beer.

I'm logging in to give you guys my piece of mind.

This "story" is just so confusing and not even worth wasting your time on. What is this? A redneck entertainment? Who wants to hear about the misery of a B-coop loser and a B-lawyer loser in New Oreleans?

This is just run of the mill - HBO boring sleeping between the commercials junk.

Why do people waste their time making a movie of a novel story that should never be written?

I want a refund from Block Buster for a movie that should never hit the shelves!

I WANT MY MONEY BACK FOR WASTING MY TIME!

B-MOVE B-ACTING B-STORY C-ACTORS

BUUUUUUUUHUUUUUU!

: (((((

by the way - I REALLY hope that the beautiful 50ies car was just a Hollywod decoy. If they destroyed a car like that for this piece of crap movie I'm going to chase down the director!
