ok movie but a total rip off
16 August 2001 | by hoytwoodSee all my reviews

I actually liked this film up to the "long kiss goodnight" climax which was not just a rip off it was the exact same footage from driving through the christmas parade to the truck exploding with the exception of the close up's of the stars of this film. (its not hard to tell the difference between a mid '90's ford and a 2000 oldsmobile). I cant say dont watch it but if you go for low budget crap that looks like high budget then it is watchable.
