On some roads it is better not to fold ... And some movies do not look better ...

On some roads it is better not to fold ...

And some movies do not look better ...

Hmm ladies and gentlemen, it happens sometimes! This film is accidentally caught my eye, but after reading an annotation to it, it interested me. I expected to see a strong thriller like "The Turn" by Oliver Stone, for all the description for this disposal - a married accountant and his young lover, former lover caught them at the most inopportune moment, and therefore became a "corpse", which is unfortunate lovers to hide , for which they are sent into the wilderness to the notorious Ziziks Road.

What in the end. From the film I began to turn up already for 10 minutes, helped by a completely useless and uninteresting диалог, however, it was longer, but it does not matter. Very pretty girl with a lollipop in his mouth has a conversation with her father Godea uncle that would be quickly buried the corpse of her former the groom and quickly get back on that uncle bravely replied that everything would settle. Lord, who chose for the main male role in this masterpiece of "intergalactic" popular singer textural roles of men over 45, Leo Grillo? Believe in the existence of certain feelings between the young beauty, and our superhero in предварительно-retirement age is absolutely impossible, remember what kind of "fountain" was the feeling between King Kong and actress from the same movie, there is no hint of passion, so to empathize with characters already as it is not want.

Somewhere in the 40 minutes I turned off the film to look at KinoPoiske what kind of people have written it. And what is revealed to me: the film's director - a mediocre writer of films class B or even lower, he is a screenwriter and producer with a couple (who would have thought) the great Leo Grillo, so the choice for the main male role in this project was a foregone conclusion. As for the girls, it was Katherine Heigl, recently flashed in a very cute comedy "Knocked Up," as she agreed to star in this opus - is unclear, do all the paper was much better than that was the result, or the question was about money, after having in his filmography of the films can be great to spoil his reputation.

But someone's reputation on roles in movies is not exactly worried about is the third member of this motion picture - Tom Sizemore. The actor has long removed for a pinch of cocaine, it goes to 157 films a year and not a good one ... But the money does not smell because, as lawyers and realibitatsionnye clinics have to pay, and that's removed once the invoice actor Tom in any trash.

I decided to watch the movie, what this is all over, and I got a surprise ...

In the middle of the film is like an unexpected turn (it may be someone waiting in between going to bed) and the film is developed in a different vein ... even more delusional, more incoherent and meaningless. Katherine Heigl is trying to show fear and it is tolerable but it turns out (it is still a pretty actress who has proved that in "Knocked Up"), but because she is opposed to strict adherent of the school of Stanislavsky, acting genius, Leo Grillo, and there is nowhere to go, to yield titanium.

In the film, awful everything from script to performance, диалог and disclosure of the plot can be cast into a shock film fans, and ward off from watching any movie was about two weeks. I watched the film only by Katherine Heigl, she is the only thing worth watching this film, but in general it is better not to look too much he is hopeless in my opinion.

The budget of the movie $ 2 million and $ 30 fee, it's the most amazing collections I have ever seen, he was still in theaters? I would not be surprised if the $ 30 paid by Leo Grillo himself that would be with his family to see what their dad a cool dude, with himself in the movie Tom Sizemore is removed ...

Rate this movie on a scale of 10?

I think -10 of 10 it just right
