One of my 'regrets' of DVDs that I have bought. I payed $9 I think, I will never watch that movie again.

Almost amazing a movie with so much going for it the way of plot, cast, and budget could fail so miserably. Howard gets the credit for screwing this one up totally, he is very hit and miss.

By the end of the movie I couldn't have cared less what happened to any of the characters in the film. I was completely disengaged in every way and was just 'white knuckling' it to finish a DVD I payed money for.

Again it had so much going for it... hard to believe it sucked so badly.

For $5 bucks? Who knows that's what it would cost to rent it. Your call.

I wouldn't buy it.

I saw this but can't recall too many specifics. You made me want to see it again now.

Seriously. These "Is ... any good?" threads are getting tiresome. Either check Rottentomatoes or any other review site if you want to get a mix of opinions quickly.

And yet, both of you clicked on the thread and bothered to post an answer that does not address the OP.

They were just doing their part to discourage any further threads from the OP.

I think ignoring the thread is more effective as witnessed on many different boards.

No it is not worth the $5 you would spend. Very slow and incoherent.

Not the best way to spend two hours....
