colossal waste of time
9 April 2015 | by tommeier-71120See all my reviews

ultra lame dialogue, wholly implausible but predictable plot & characters combined with anorexic female leads ... the film manages to be neither suspenseful nor funny and lacks any potential to be even slightly charming. the attempts at eroticism fail utterly due to the bland visuals - and the participants remain seriously overdressed for the occasions(they probably thought it inadvisable to show more than a glimpse of the female's emaciated shoulders and legs, let alone much else) - that set up leaves not much for actors to act in any meaningful sort of way, which they really do splendidly; this film gives bad story telling as well as bad film making a bad name ...
