acting sucks and the story lacks any direction
15 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

to me it feels like, the director might have came to writer asking him to write a story for 1hr. writer as always have no clue of writing the story, so he went to cameraman, spot boy, garbage boy, cleaner, etc. They all gave him some suggestion. Writer who is a dumb-ass, instead of making a complete story took those bits and pieces and make some thing up to fill the 1/2 hr. That is how the first part got done.

I mean, in which world Barney was able to take the motorbike and start it. How did he got the motorbike key and if Barney took the bike, why didn't anyone else stole the bike.

so the drunk acting of Marshel is the worst you will have ever seen, its not funny. the part 1 was awful awful awful. with some random stories not hanging anywhere.

part 2 was going good, but than comes Victoria. WTF, again one more bull s**t

Also, in which world they have such stupid security at the airport. The Dog is barking, it is suspicious thing, can be bomb. In fact it also blast in the security room and the cops let him go.

the serial lacks any direction. the name of the serial should be "How I become MALE SLUT" which father in the world tells all this story to their kid, telling them that their mother was the last choice after Ted bang so many girls and he decided to settle down at the age of 34-37 (who knows) for some random girl.
