Wow...Just Terrible

Wow...Just terrible. What a waste of time. First of all, why does Jim Carrey take these kinds of roles? "The Number 23" was a crappy somewhat of a porno Jim Carrey film but it was far better than this crappy somewhat of a porno snuff-ish style film. Save your time. Bypass this one. Basically Jim Carrey is a dwindling detective in a foreign country who is trying to solve a cold case about some no name guy who got killed in some underground sex club. His prime suspect is a novelist and the Chief of Police is corrupt but really has no role in the movie other than just being there.
