Bad, bad, bad!
24 December 2019 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This must have been a film that was some kind of partial requirement for a college degree. The acting is terrible, the dialog forced, and the story just silly. When I say the acting is bad, it's really bad. Seems to be as if the producer/director/writer hired friends and family to do this "podcast" level "movie"! I hope we never have to see a repeat of something at this level!
