Unremittingly AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL
19 January 2000 | by jack-298See all my reviews

OK - maybe I sugarcoated my opinion just a little.

The central character is a raging lunatic. The entire premise of the film is weak,threadbare, laughable (sneeringly, not humorously).

Dear God --to have back, the time I wasted watching it! I wanted to rate it in the minus column, but apparently that's not an option.

Choose a root-canal, if you have a choice of that or this film. You'll thank me.
