Not that bad!
10 September 2010 | by AustraliaSteinSee all my reviews

I was asleep and was awoken by the television very early morning, This movie was on! It managed to grab my attention and I couldn't get back to sleep! Yes it was cheesy and bad, But there was something about it that kept me glued there.

A pretty good cast considering and the sets are alright, although it just can't shake the cheese factor look.

This would be the SECOND best early morning movie I have ever awoken too, the first be The Jade Scorpion by Woody Allen, I've woken up twice to that movie.

I would never recommend EVER renting this movie, But if your fair smashed from a big night or awoken by this movie, defo watch it!
