Quotes

[first lines]
Jerry: It was the end of an era, profit had turned to loss, fortune to folly, winners to losers. And the chaff was beginning to fall out like so much dandruff. Didn't have to shake too hard to get me to tumble though, I'd only ever been along of the ride. I just never cared that much. And now, now it was time for something new.

Avoid at all costs.
28 February 2004 | by eli_kaufmanSee all my reviews

My god this film was awful.

I would bet my left arm that everyone who made positive comments was a shill for the film company.

Poor acting, sluggish pace, insipid dialog, and that's just when it's good.

The characters are as deep as the a puddle on a sidewalk and equally boring.

I can say that is competently lit though the camera moves are frequently.

Avoid at all costs, you'll never get that time back.

No wonder it took 5 years for this movie to come out.
