What were they thinking? Total Sh1t!!
16 August 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Watched three quarters of the movie before coming to the conclusion that looking at the inside of my eyelids would be more entertaining and that's exactly what I expect most people will end up doing if they are unfortunate enough to see this fatuous non-event. I kept hoping for Ben Kingsley to arrive and inject something into the movie, like perhaps a storyline, some rhyme or reason for following a woman round with a camera to no end. I didn't get to see him, as unfortunately I nodded off more than once and when I came to, I decided to turn it off. I am bewildered as to why anyone would spend money and effort making such a piece of crap. I can only imagine that one day someone woke up on a lovely sunny morning, with birds chirping, children playing and a feeling that all was good in the world and then thought "Karma's a bitch so I'll now have to spend my time and other people's hard earned cash making the dullest movie I can think of"! Shame on everyone involved, as none of them had the integrity to say "Stop it!" at any point.
