boring, pretentious, boring, self-indulgent, and did I say boring?
Yes, it was awful beyond belief. The acting was really horrid; no fault of the actors and actresses I'm sure, but the director's, as usual.
And the script was really lame. Another one of these "only on TV would you accept stupid lines like these" movies.
I knew I was in trouble because soon enough I was clenching my teeth and cringing from all of the arty camera moves, music, and whatnot. I wish people would realize that being arty is no excuse for being truly creative.
Part of me is disappointed that so many people liked this but considering how many people like the drek that's on TV, like Jerry Springer, daytime soaps, etc. I guess I should just accept that it takes all kinds.
