See it anyway.
4 July 2002 | by jtur88See all my reviews

This was not a great movies. It wasn't even a really good one. But see it, anyway. William Sanderson is a character that you will never forget, and he plays the role with impeccable perfection. Forget about the defects in the film and the other characters who are less than great. Just sit back, with no expectations of anything great, and let Sanderson walk you through a nice but very simple story.
