This Movie is Awful!
24 January 2015 | by lori27605See all my reviews

This movie may truly be one of the worst. The acting is HORRIBLE!!It's worse than horrible-there truly are no words. Nothing about it works. The funny thing is, it was so bad that I found myself not able to tear myself away from it, wondering if it could get any worse. I was especially interested to see how the actress would portray Shelby's hypoglycemic attack. Sigh. My expectations were not high, and it's a good thing. I know type I diabetics and her reaction (staring into space all wide-eyed and in a trance)just could not be more off. It was at this point, I just couldn't take it anymore and had to change the channel.
