Baaaaaaaaaaaad-uh!!!
10 June 2014 | by br_haSee all my reviews

Beyond idiotic, this "movie" is the biggest piece of tripe ever. I cannot believe anyone even partially connected to it would allow their names to be printed, ANYWHERE. This was so bad, I was laughing at the start, became insulted by the mid-point and gave up 42 minutes in. If anyone got paid anything for this, they should man up and return the money or donate it to a charity. Well, they say they need 10 lines soo.....
