Don't waste your time with this one!
26 February 2010 | by brittashSee all my reviews

I really couldn't watch the whole film. Well to be precise I struggled to watch 15 minutes.

Maybe the film didn't really have a chance to start, but I was going brain dead.

This film might appeal to some people, but I class a comedy as a film with humour. Sorry, but I couldn't find any real humour in this film. Well one thing that made me laugh a little was the picture of the male date sent to the woman in the office. It didn't get any better than that!

I have never switched a film off so quickly, especially after purchasing it from virgin movies on demand at a cost of £3.50.

Next time I will review first then purchase. A lesson learnt!
