This was one of the more moronic movies I have ever seen. The plot is promising, family get a million bucks if they push a button on the box. After this, it become real stupid. Cameron Diaz is very wooden during the movie, about as emotional as a rock. This is in stark contrast to her acting in "My Best Friend's Wedding." She acting was so boring, I had to stick myself with my straw just to keep awake. The scene kept changing from one strange view to the next. You couldn't keep up with it. Very confusing and weird. Just when you got a little comfortable, things changed in a much stranger mode. And the ending sucked beyond words. A terrible movie and one not worth even a trip to NextFlicks. Take our word and don't get this movie.
