More a novelty, curiosity, than anything else.
10 March 2009 | by huh_oh_i_cSee all my reviews

I saw this primarily because boxofficemojo. com gave this movie the worst productioncost-to-visitor ratio, EVER! That's primarily because they didn't distribute it.

And showed it only in one theatre world wide But still. Officially, 30 people saw the theatrical release.

But since then, it has been downloaded many more times.

So .... I will give this an A for Effort.

It was kinda hard to sit through.

The story was hard to follow.

But Heigl was Okay.

I liked Madsen as well.
