Complete and Total Crap!
9 August 2017 | by kevinpleasantSee all my reviews

Go watch paint dry. Go watch the water spin around in the toilet after you flush it. Spend your time and money doing anything but watching this nonsensical and utterly boring garbage. After hanging in there hoping for some sort of conclusion that would bring this disjointed mess together the garbage just ended like a horse with a broken leg being put out of it's misery. No payoff for sticking around till the end. This gives new meaning to the word sucks.
