Why did I bother?
12 January 2020 | by snktrssSee all my reviews

This is one of those movies I passed by many times on Netflix because I had feeling it would suck, well it did and should have stuck with my gut. The story is convoluted and at the beginning you will try to figure out all the players and the plot. There's no feeling with anything that takes place, just a brunch of random events connected, but not enough to make you care for anyone. The Fishburne intimate scenes were so off putting and not even pleasing to the eye. Feel like I'm blind now like how Al Bundy use to feel when he'd get any glimpse of Marcy next door.
