Truly heinous piece of film
3 April 2018 | by pivicSee all my reviews

Wasted opportunity after wasted opportunity marks this bad omen of a film. Do not see it. There's no humor here, nor any kind of freshness around. It's stale, there's no romance, an antique view of women, and sloppy direction. All from the script to the plot is vapid and heinous.

There are no redeeming features, possibly bar Suzanne Reuter's vacant acting. The jokes are lame, the scenes are placid...there's just nothing of value here.
