Worth every penny
17 March 1999 | by ryangilmer007See all my reviews

I actually bought this movie in a wierd twist; Blockbuster had a $3 off sale of PVT and this movie cost $2.99. So, I actually got the movie and a penny back; Therefore, I thought this movie would be incredibly bad. But it is not. Given, the movie has the feel of a play and continually using Zooman's speaking directly at the camera to move the story on gets annoying. The movie is better at telling issues (senseless killings) then it is at moving the story on (there isn't much action or drama; mostly town bickering). Therefore, it is good yet bad. Watching the play would be better, but who is going to squabble over a penny?
