bad film - fun DVD
5 March 2006 | by psixtaSee all my reviews

I have to disagree...

The movie is very lame... but almost in a good/funny way. It's the questions that make this interactive DVD fun. In between movie segments you're asked questions about your feelings toward the events that took place and also psychological questions about yourself. In the end you get an evaluation of your your mental health.. which is more like a cosmo quiz unfortunately..

The story is badly written and predictable. The actors a overacting and a saw a microphone in the frame once or twice..

Still for a couple off bucks it's a nice DVD to watch (and play)
