That bad its even worse !
7 July 2007 | by bingobearukSee all my reviews

Saw this film a couple of years back when I discovered it had someone I know in it. What a disappointment it was to see it , a really awful film and with awful acting especially by Gabe Cameron who plays Eddie , seen better acting in Seaseme Street ! Don't waste your money on this even if you see at .01p it may damage your VCR or DVD player If you want to see a film thats the pits then watch this If you want to see Shakespere , then rent out a Kenneth Brannagh Film I wish I could have given this film ZERO 0 , but I wasn't able too The Comic , it was no joke watching this load of tosh !

1 Star as I had to give between 1 or 10 this film should win a razzie
