Everyone to whom I spoke about this movie hated it. I think they hated it for the wrong reasons though. Noone understood it. So, in retrospect my next question should have been “How can you say you hate it if you don’t understand it? Isn’t that the same as bigotry, unfounded hatred?” However I am not that sharp. So, on to the movie. I didn’t hate it, I understood it, and came to the conclusion that the reason people disliked it so much was that it wasn’t enough like a movie for them,. It was too much like actual people they know doing things they do and the whole thing was an uncomfortable “too close to home” experience for them to handle. The acting was accurate, the movie achieved its objectives and therefore,by definition was a decent flick. Much like The Jerky Boys movie or Starship Troopers, the story was secondary to the purpose of the movie. The Jerky Boys was meant to be a bad movie, and it was. Starship Troopers was meant to have great effects and it did, but they were not great movies. They matched their billing, no more, no less. This was the same deal. Although not gripping, not coherent in parts, and not cohesive in general, it was not worth hating. It was not memorable and that, unfortunately, is too often said in this day and age. However, it is one of the very few, and I mean really very few movies that I have turned off halfway through because it was so bad. I eventually finished it out of spite and now, more than 8 years aftwer writing this review I still haven’t turned off another movie since – Except Apocalypto which I just gave up on it was so boring…

Rating 3. Don’t bother.
