Independent films can be entertaining and/or enlightening... This is neither!
13 August 2010 | by mr-roboto-1See all my reviews

I love independent films. For the most part, you must take some with a grain of salt to get through them. Sometimes they are so raw that you must look deep for the message, or meaning. And some have a simple provocative controversial thought they are trying to relay. You must take into account that these films are made on a shoe string budget and make allowances. Actually, I like the feel of the low budget Independent movies. With all that said, this movie wasn't worth the $ 500,000 they spent to make it.

I saw this recently at one of our Independent Film movie theatres, "The Roxie" for a modest ticket price of $3.00. I spend more on a sandwich than this, but I and many more in the theatre wanted our money back. What a waste of time. I think my time is worth more than that, but they all can't be winners.

Please remember that if you still decide to see it after you read my blurb and you agree that it sucked, "I told you so"
