"A GREAT DOCUMENTARY ABOUT TURKEY, ANYONE WHOM IS PLANNING TO GO ON A VACATION MUST SEE IT BEFORE DECIDING FOR THE PLACE"
Beyond Bad (negative stars). A real ripoff

"Justine Shapiro, an unattractive spoiled young woman goes to a country with some of the greatest archeological sites in the world, and ends up producing a video featuring (what else?) herself involved in a series of trivial activities. She spends only a few moments in Ephesus because (surprise, surprise) it's too crowded, but spends a lot of time on living in a tree house youth hostel on Mt. Olympus, races through the tunnels of Cappadocia being oh-so-cute, the same with a peasant wedding. And all interspersed with poorly focused and faded footage of the Anatolian plateau taken from bus windows. But if you do buy this bomb, you'll get to see lots of pictures of (what else) Justine Shapiro.
Justine appears, by the way, in a green dress with a hem so high that it barely covers her Thunder Thighs, a curious choice in a country where conservative dress is appreciated.
I've been to Turkey, and it's a fascinating country, but you'll never know it from watching this stinker.
A much better quality video on the same topic is: Biblical Treasures of Turkey
