Nancy: Hey! How was it? How'd it go?
Miranda Wells: Dr. Cyper's amazing. You'd think he was cutting the crusts off his kid's sandwich.
Nancy: So you really want to leave all of this for that?

Return to Writer and Director
9 November 2015 | by MilkWithHoneySee all my reviews

How they managed to get well known actors in this ill-fated plot of a movie is beyond me. Maybe they pulled a classic bait and switch and presented one script to get people on board and then filmed an alternate script during production, either way this is what you would call a disappointment to be polite.

Now let's start with the PLOT, the whole premise for the movie was a great idea, loved it from the synopsis, the execution of the plot was discerning. After the inciting incident the whole plot takes a disastrous tumble. You will fail to realize the objective of the film by the end. Not only that the credits couldn't roll fast enough for me and I was so happy that I didn't pay $14 to see this in the cinema.

CHARACTERS: Funny enough, you may just end up rooting for the villain, that's how recklessly this film's plot us put together. I found myself with no compassion for our main character. I did however, feel bad for Nick Nolte, because I couldn't for the life of me figure out how his agent tricked him into this.

I gave this two stars. One for putting a budget together to get the film done and the other for getting decent stars to somehow film this.
