Of course we should all cut some slack for low budget films. Sure there will be production compromises, plot holes for which there maybe no money to re-shoot. That is understandable.
But given the number of good to moderate talent actors out there: having astoundingly bad acting in the leads, to the point where the viewer is cringing or laughing at how bad it is, is not acceptable. The unbelievably bad acting makes this film utterly unwatchable. The lead "actress" is makes you want to leave the room when she is on-screen and the lead male is almost as bad.
