It is deceit to call this a movie
7 October 2001 | by sallen7See all my reviews

This movie was beyond cheese and camp. At least campy movies can be fun but this was utterly miserable. I spent one dollar at the local video rental place for this piece of junk. I would rather watch QVC.

There is but a faint shred of goodness in this film and that is Lela Rochon. She is extremely beautiful in this film. The script just was not for her. She must have been in a bind to appear in this. I am thinking rent was due.

Everything else was all cliche. A person who was just learning the English language could do better with the dialogue. Please, avoid this film.
