Maybe the worst script ever filmed!
29 October 2005 | by Pedro_HSee all my reviews

A rich couple and a poor couple -- both played by Joan Collins and Steven Berkoff -- prattle to the camera (and between themselves) about their lives and experiences.

This is the pits of the pits. Bad. Bad. Bad. Staring the biggest -- most talentless -- show offs that ever went before the camera. Talk about camera mugging. Berkoff makes Jerry Lewis look restrained.

Basically Berkoff points the camera at himself and then overacts for England, village hall style. Collins -- who looks at least a 100 years old (despite six tons of make up) looks as bored as you will be if you start watching this pile of old tosh.

This has to be one of the worst movies ever made and without any doubt the worst script ever filmed.
