Terrible Movie... Seriously, pass this one up
25 August 2014 | by jennsheSee all my reviews

What a terrible movie and a huge waste of time! The star is trying too hard to create a happy-go-lucky mash up between a Julia Roberts type character in Pretty Girl and a serious Rene Russo. She looks much older than her leading man (i.e., her face looks like she's had a lot of work done and not very good work at that. There is very little romantic chemistry between her and the male lead. Armand Assante plays his role like a mafia kingpin. I couldn't help waiting for him to say bada-bing, then shoot somebody.

Watch this movie at your own peril. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. I'm not surprised I have never heard of the lead actress. After this film, she probably didn't work much.
