| two points, 1. sink holes are not scary and 2. you have to be a genealogist to understand most of the film
A familiar looking cast, one two of them, I think corbet was in my big fat Greek wedding and northern exposure? I haven't seen either and Brittany Daniel not to get confused with little black book, 8 mile brittany murphy. Now I have seen her in 90210 and broken lizards club dread. Anyway what I'm trying to say is it has a couple of minor stars that careers should have taken a dive after this landsfill grounded. The dialogue gets too detailed for a such a dumb big goofy disaster movie. I still don't know how or what the actual disaster was? Perhaps I misread the lines, and this is suppose to be a thinking mans disaster pic? We start to care about corbett towards the end, and think just maybe one cast member could be sacrificed...The stuff they fill holes with reminds me of evolution for some reason? Its situated in New orleans during mardi gra but the boys will be sad pressed to find what they're looking for. I watched it on TV so only saved $ just lost time.
