Terrible, terrible, terrible!!
12 October 2012 | by irazSee all my reviews

A complete waste of time. No likable characters. The film is boring, unfocused and a total mess. Film is filled with attractive women, as if that would compensate for a terrible plot. The film cannot decide what this should be - a drama, a comedy? It has no funny moments, no drama, not much of a plot and surely not a developed plot. I saw this on VOD and I believe some films are dumped there to see if they could generate any buzz and/or get people to spend money in the comfort of their home before the bad buzz gets out about a film.

There are some decent actors in the film, but their roles are small and has no real effect on the quality of the film. You wonder how these films get made, do they realize it's a bomb or think it's good. If they know it's a bomb, they probably just want to recoup their investment and move on. Which is what we should do - move on BEFORE seeing this mess!
