    Congratulations, you’re the first person I’ve ever seen who didn’t like this film.

    That was one of the worst reviews I’ve ever read. You completely missed the mark on this movie at every turn. I hope no one takes you seriously.

    This is very possibly one of the worst, most painful films ever made. I agree with Gino on this one, a rare thing in most cases. The film must have had a just barely audible, subsonic ring through the whole film…because there was no point during the entire film where I was not annoyed.

    Hey guys,
    You do the math:
    $25 Million Budget
    $15 Million total box office.
    I think the only one who missed the mark was the group that lost $10 Million on this thing.

    Maybe you haven’t run into anyone else who hated the film, because it was so rare to find anyone who actually spent money to see it.
    Thanks for playing….
