Never has a title functioned better as instructions for its intended audience!
12 May 2002 | by dmiechSee all my reviews

This movie was on late night t.v. tonight, and I was so unimpressed with it that I had to come here and find out the title so I would never make the mistake of renting it. When I found out that the title was Don't Do It! It suddenly made it all worth while. The cast is deceiving. There are multiple names that you might associate with movies of integrity, but don't be fooled. I have never seen Heather Graham give a more melodramatic and unconvincing performance in my life, and that includes Dream a Little Dream. It is mind boggling that a movie can be so dry and unrealized. The premise is actually potentially very good, but it seemed that no one's heart was in it at all. Perhaps this is because the dialogue was poorly written, the actors were apathetic, and the director was satisfied with performances that were more vacant than an empty hotel. Oh well, if you come across this one, look no further than the title on the box. Unless, of course, you are a film maker and you want an advanced course of what not to do. That was what kept me watching, and boy do I ever feel enlightened.
