Not bad if you like to get lost.
17 October 2001 | by menm87See all my reviews

This was recommeded by someone and it took me forever to watch the darn thing but,I thought it was an ok story. The story took a while to get going but I found myself stuck watching it anyway. I did like seeing some of the actors and actresses that I remember and wouldn't think they would be in this title. It was weird seeing Don in this movie so I stuck it out and put my brain on freeze for a little while. All in all I just love a story, any story, no matter how stupid the plot and the characters are.
