Oh, c'mon... This movie is a joke!
31 July 2008 | by jaddlevinniSee all my reviews

I can't believe this movie is taken seriously. It's impossible. OK, there are two or three good performances, but... My God! The screenplay is ridiculous and you can clearly see it in the first ten minutes. After these ten minutes things get even worse. The direction is completely lost and inconsistent. The movie keeps disappointing the spectator every time something close to interesting happens in a way that frustrates anyone. The two last scenes - oh, boy! - are surreal and made me laugh out loud.

The only thing I can think about to understand why this movie was produced and released is to take it as a big joke.
