Bad doesn't seem strong enough
2 June 2002 | by JesNollieSee all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of the worst movies I've seen in recent years. I gave it a rating of 2 only because at times it was so bad it brought a chuckle. I've seen high school plays with better acting, and the story was silly, exloitative, sexist and full of cliches.
