Goofs

At about ten minutes and eighteen seconds into the film, The Narrator is awoken by a car horn outside the "warehouse". He gets up, on his knees, using the cane for support. Then the camera switches to a shot of Walter laying on the ground, his cane visible and also lying on the ground. In the next shot, Walter's cane is in The Narrator's hand again. See more »

Quotes

The Narrator: Maybe it's best just to sleep on it. The only problem is when I sleep, I remember. And nothing hurts quite like that.

Awful!
30 July 2011 | by gordon-hamiltonSee all my reviews

I would say the narration was inane but, that would mean it had to have sense or substance, which it didn't.

The storyline was little more than that contrived by a ten year old boy with constipation while sitting on the pot.

If we still had coal fires we could use the lacklustre script and wooden acting to light the fire.

If vitality is the characteristic which distinguishes living things from nonliving things, we may now bury this and not bother with a wake.

I would like to say that this digital diatribe had no redeeming features at all but, it does have one, a visual one, and that is the beauty of Roselyn Sanchez.
