Pay the shipping, and you have yourself a free movie
16 May 2003 | by V8_JamezSee all my reviews

A terrible film, quite honestly. Dumb characters, crappy script, a story you could care less about.

But...I did like Giovanni Ribisi's character. Or maybe I just like him because of his past efforts like "Boiler Room" and "Saving Private Ryan". Anyhow, who produced this crap? Oh yeah...Marrissa and Giovanni Ribisi's dad apparently. Of all the scripts that don't get made, hard to believe this wasn't one of them.

And finally, a movie in which I don't like Juliett Lewis' acting or character. Now that takes some doing.

This VHS tape will be collecting dust in my collection never to be seen again. What a waste.
