| A Great Acting Line cannot compensate for trash
Well, I purchased this video thinking it might be worthwhile. Indeed it is terrible. One grade below B. Plot is fairly predictable and at least from my point of the view, the characters somewhat disgusting and self centered. The so called Ugly, Rich and stupid American would apply here.

I in same week purchased Brokeback Mountain which as you all know was an academy award winner. This flick against BBM rates -4. Sorry, but that's my critical view.

I do enjoy good flicks and as we know the babble generation isn't too discriminating.

I also enjoyed Vera Drake, a very moving and well acted flick.
