Ugh... save yourself some time, mooooove on

Okay, I would probably give this three stars except for the glaringly obvious fake reviews that bumped the rating points enough that I wasted time trying to watch this clunker. It's not good. It's really not.

I get how incredibly time-consuming, complicated, expensive, exhausting and exhilarating it must be to make and be part of the community that pulls any production together. Maybe by the time it's all over and the people involved get to watch what they've made, they can't help but love it.

I wasn't one of those people. I'm one of the people who watches films like this and wonders who on earth invested the time, money and talent and still ended up with something so dull and clichéd. It must be worth it at some point -- but it's surely frustrating for people like myself who wanted to invest a quiet weeknight in an enjoyable movie, and instead got suckered into a time-waster like this. It's not even that I'm particularly picky or jaded -- this is just a dull movie with slow-moving scenes, and the kind of plot you can predict the next scene or twist with nearly 100% accuracy.
