Did You Know?


The name of the artist of the evil paintings is Dorian Wilde. Of course, Oscar Wilde was the author of the 1891 novel The Picture of Dorian Gray in which a man sells his soul so only his portrait, not he, will age. See more »


Outside of the Miracle Mile shops (at 40:21), as a man walks behind Kim and Donna, he points directly into the camera. See more »

Should Have Known Better
10 November 2019 | by Athanatos173See all my reviews

Before I get to the review I have an idea that could perhaps, if not eliminate, greatly reduce all these fake reviews by people involved in the production of the movies they review with "10" 's.

1) All ratings from new accounts do not count towards the sum total until the account is at least 3 months old and the account has rated let's say 500 movies.

2) All reviews are not visible until the account is at least 3 months old and the account has written a minimum of 20 reviews.

These are simply examples of what could be done to remedy this wildly out of control trend on IMDb from members of production wasting our time with their fake reviews and further wasting our time by fooling us.

Why did I write that? Because even though I should have known better, the fake rating of this movie actually fooled me into thinking this was a decent movie. As I write this, there are 126 votes of "10" and 133 votes of "9". And if the 259 people who thought this movie was near perfect or perfect are not somehow involved with the production I will eat my hat.

This movie is simply awful.

Horrible acting from people who should seriously look into other career options as they will end up waiting tables for their rest of their lives and a washed up Tara Reid who at one point in her career actually had some promise but let alcohol and endless bad decisions lead her to these types of movies.

Do yourself a favor and avoid this, it's not even a "so bad it's good" type of movie, it's just dreck.
