Likable cast in an unlikeable film
25 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This past Sunday evening while waiting for SIX FEET UNDER to start, & having nothing better to do & being a JAMES SPADER fan I watched this.

This is a very confusing film, hard to understand for a few reasons. 3/4 this of the dialog is incomprehensible due to the fact that an annoying music score is heard that was louder than the actors voices. Many times the actors spoke so low I doubt that the actors they were speaking to heard them.

Matt Davis, a newcomer(very good looking) is the lead performer, SORRY TO SAY HE NEEDDS ACTING LESSONS. James Spader, Peter Coyote & Aiden Quinn all accomplished actors in other movies do not shine here.All the actresses seem to walk through there roles.

At 88 minutes it is very long. I cannot remember it being shown in theatres when it was released in July 2004

rating IMDb 4/10 ** out 4 53 points/100
