tries to hard to be cool
1 July 2002 | by jackrabbitslims-1See all my reviews

like those dumb kids in high school who try to make friends with everyone and always carry gum and smell funny, this movie tries to hard to attract everyone's interest. It's a weak screenplay with some pretty good cinematography, but it loses it's audience's interest early on.
