Throw out the movie
19 April 2006 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

This is a badly made movie about a publicity guy on vacation helping a small town fight big business and pollution. Clearly aimed at the family market this appears to have been made by a bunch of film makers who didn't know what to do beyond point and shoot. This would be passable if it wasn't for the fact that the cast knows that no one behind the camera cared so they don't care either. Everyone seems to be walking through their roles as if waiting for something better to come along. Still the movie can't be completely written off since there are a few laughs and once you get a decent amount into the film you'll be curious enough to see what happens (I liken it to seeing a bad road accident). I wouldn't hunt it down, but if trapped in a room with this on I think you could do worse.
