Truth is always more entertaining than fiction
30 December 2001 | by JANEICESee all my reviews

This movie holds your interest from start to finish. The whole time I am watching this movie I was just in utter disbelief that these events actually happened. Again, the truth is always much more entertaining than fiction. Worth a look see.
