At best, a decent way to kill some time
5 October 1999 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

I wasn't sure of what to expect from this film, and what I got was a so-so movie that had some good individual scenes but didn't manage to keep me all that interested. The movie was more consistently entertaining towards the end, but by then I was already getting somewhat bored. The ending was the best part of the movie, but it wasn't enough to make the film satisfying as a whole. For me, at least, it took too long for the story to focus on one particular relationship, and it would have been considerably better if the spotlight would have always been on two of the characters. As it is, it has good moments, but not enough to make it worthwhile.
