What???
7 December 2000 | by majolicaSee all my reviews

What is this c***???? This is the worst movie I think I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of bad movies. Let's see. It had: bad acting, bad directing, bad sound editing, bad script, bad plot, bad sets, bad actors, bad music, etc. Thank god I didn't have to pay to see it, or else I would have demanded a refund. THIS MOVIE SUCKS!!!!!!!
