I Want My 18 Minutes Back
2 November 2017 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

One of the worst pieces of crap you'll ever have to endure.

Dumb idiotic moronic cretin-esque concept.

Brought to digital fruition by complete incompetents who are clearly hoping to score a real HW contract.

Only it won't happen.

These mealy mouthed "filmmakers" can't write, direct, format or do anything right.

It is a boring garbage fest that feels like it goes on for hours.

Stay away and don't believe one good review They worked on the film.
