Simply horrible
19 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I usually do not write a review for any movies I watch, which will be obvious from this one. I will not claim to be anything more than a movie buff looking out for fellow buffs who find their time precious. I read reviews hoping to weed out the stinkers, as I cherish my free time. No thanks to the reviews on this film, I watched in amazement possibly the worst film of my life. The acting was unbearable. The casting atrocious. The storyline, screenplay, lighting, furniture...you name it and it sucked!(the dog was stellar, however)I could spend 5 or 6 paragraphs explaining the movie, which the synopsis does and yet the clowns leaving the reviews before me waste more time by doing. I will instead give you the advice that I only wish was given to me...grab a chair, turn on your faucet, sit down and watch for an hour and a half. At least you will be able to erase that from memory.
