26 July 2003 | by good_girlSee all my reviews

I think that this is the worst film I have ever seen. It has no redeeming features. The "actors" certainly can't act, there is no storyline and you don't care about anything. There is no humor or emotion. I can't imagine why anyone would bother to make a film like this. Avoid!
