I think I'm going to be sick
15 July 2017 | by ppilfSee all my reviews

The screenplay of this film must have been written by a 3rd grader, and its director a 2nd grader. So if you have an intelligence level above those grades, don't waste your time on this nauseating pablum. Instead watch any episode of "Leave It To Beaver"; it will be a Shakespearian masterpiece by comparison.

Enough said… except maybe Ggaaaggh!!
