Terrible rendition of the Biblical story.
23 October 2003 | by acearmsSee all my reviews

An attempt to portray Jacob in his quest for a wife fell flat on its rear end. Whiting with his heavy and stiff English accent, while others spoke more American English, was almost laughable. The plot was known, so not much to go on there, however, the acting was terrible by all and would not even rate a B movie acclaim. Don't waste you time on this one.
