Just awful
24 October 2003 | by christophaskellSee all my reviews

I sat through it, turned it off, ejected it, rewound it, and went on about my day as if nothing had happened. A few hours later I'm sitting down to write this review and I can think of absolutely nothing to write. I know I watched it, and stayed awake for the whole thing, but I was so entirely unaffected by this that here, only a few hours later, I've already forgotten everything. Stay away from this for no other reason than it's terrible. Not a single part is remotely interesting. Rating: 5/40
