Not the best, but passable
12 April 2002 | by giggle_girl_15See all my reviews

I can't say this was the best movie I've ever seen, but it certainly wasn't the worst. The actors, while a little unrealistic, were okay for a movie like this. See it, but only if you are wanting to fill a little time on a rainy day.
