Like Watching Paint Dry
1 January 2004 | by psychprofessorSee all my reviews

I can't say the movie was awful, just that it was awfully slow. It seemed to have been filmed in slo-mo, if you know what I mean. The acting was decent, and there was a twist at the end, but by the time I got there, I was just glad for it to be over.
