| can't believe this movie has a 6.6 rating
I also can't believe i watched all of it. perhaps i was waiting for it to get better, but sadly, it was wretched from beginning to end, from acting to plot to the writing and the crappy film quality--it reminded me of a very bad 80s pr0n film as far as quality and acting and dialogue.

it's amazing how many movies use the conceit of providing character insights by dint of a therapist or a friend or girlfriend asking them questions or providing narrative about them. it really annoys me when this is so obvious that i notice it and then it annoys me and nags at me as i dislike being manipulated. and the producers created and assigned the female lead to do exactly that for like 94% of the entire movie and she was super annoying.

but far surpassing her annoyance factor was the male lead--the dullest, most uninteresting, most emotionless, most stick-up-the-ass person in existence and the last person on earth to be a subject of a movie. and i still don't know if the character was written like that and the actor was brilliant or that the actor created the lack of character by being emotionless.

worthless dreck, imo.
