Don’t see this movie.  To say that I was disappointed would be too weak a word.  And let me state for the record that I have seen some horrible movies in my time.  Movies that even a guy and his three robots heckling at the screen couldn’t improve it.  But I had hope for this film mainly because it was so very pretty.  But what it had in effects was done away with by both the plot, what there was of it, and the lack of je ne sais quoi between the two main characters.  I didn’t care for any one in this film and was embarrassed by the presence of certain actors who I thought should have passed on this particular job.  

So don’t see this movie even if it is playing for free on a cable channel just pass it by.

I give this movie five black holes.
