Not The Worst Movie You'll Ever See
25 August 2000 | by thedoctor98See all my reviews

The idea is pretty average, but at least it had potential. Imagine what could have been accomplished if they'd had a script that didn't appear to be written by a kindergarten student.

Seriously, the actors seem to go about the first half of the movie making things up as they go along. The second half of the movie attempts to put things right, but never gets going the way it should. Good actors would have trouble with a script this bad, so it's no wonder that actors of THIS quality come across as being completely c**p.

Surely not all New Zealand's writing and film making talent has gone overseas ... because if this is what it's left with, they're in big, big trouble.
