Billed as 'the first Czech European film', hopefully also the last.
A terrible film.
There are so many things wrong with this film its hard to know where to start. So for arguments sake lets begin with wondering why a Czech team made a film in English, and used actors who could barely speak the language. Two examples suffice, the pronunciation of 'knock' with a 'K', and 'doubt' with a 'B' are surely enough to describe the quality of the actors and production values.
Most of the common crude black stereotypes are employed, not so surprising in a Czech film, but considering the international market it is aimed at (being in English),its perhaps not so wise. Are people still making jokes about black men having large genitalia in 2005? Yes if this film is to be believed.
It's hard to think of many saving graces about this clichéd drivel. Clearly trying to be inspired by the likes of Amelie and Magnolia, it fails on every count.
