One of the worse movies ever.
4 January 2005 | by PoolieSee all my reviews

This movie is a total mess. For the record, I love smart original off-beat independent movies. This one tries to be that but instead is a huge disaster in trying to be too artsy. The writing and directing both suck big time. None of it makes any sense. The director tries way too hard to be creative and over the top, but instead the scenes all come off as invented on the spot. Only positive point: the 3 main actors are likable despite it all. The rest of the cast is totally incompetent and over-acts badly. Even as a really bad film school project, I would still give it an "F".

STAY AWAY FROM THIS WASTE OF TIME!
