Laughably Bad
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, that's nearly two hours I'll never get back. This movie is bad on so many levels. No time was taken to develop the characters, a preposterous plot, bad writing, it's just bad all around. Gabriella Wilde is the only watchable one in the film. While it features other rather talented actors, there's only so much you can do with such poor writing. I can't believe Richard Dreyfuss would lend his name to this awful movie.

As a side note: Could we please dispense with the clichéd British bad guy?? In this film especially, I felt I was watching Austen Powers at times, it was so ridiculous.
