Complete codswallop
16 October 2005 | by imdb-10138See all my reviews

Hilariously bad. Everything you'd expect from a film which starts with the advisory phrase "Suggested by actual events". Not 'Based on actual events', you notice - just 'Suggested by'.

Which is an indication of what a complete load of codswallop this straight-to-video nightmare really is. Tony Danza displays all the emotional breadth and depth of a soap dish, leaving Pamela Reed acting against herself for most of the film - a challenge she meets by putting in a performance so over the top that you constantly feel you've missed some major plot point. Ving Rhames spends most of the film looking as confused as you as to why he's actually turned up at the set.

Complete codswallop. But worth a look if you want a laugh.
