Movie Reviews

Not too good even with beautiful Sandra
John A Lee III | San Antonio, TX | 04/20/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I admit it. I bought this one because I think Sandra Bullock is beautiful and she looked nice on the box. I need not have bothered. She is a very minor character with minimal screen time. She does well in her few moments but that is not enough to make this a "good show".

The story revolves around a Madison Avenue type who thinks he has a divine mission to found a new religion. He sets about hsi task with all of the market research tools at his disposal and manages to fleece his flock of much of their disposable income. Near the end, he begins to see the light and reforms himself.

There are a few brief moments of laughter, a few moments of Sandra in briefs but the the redeeming moments are all too brief."
Whoa! This movie is bad.
Reed V. Affolter | Pleasant Hil, CA | 09/17/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"WARNING! Do not waste your money or your time.

Sandra Bullock is not in this movie enough to warrent the packaging headling her as the star. [...]

The sound quality is really bad, as well as the lighting and if they used a script that too.

Run from this movie."
Not worth buying
Heidi | 08/27/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Being a huge fan of Sandra Bullock, I bought this movie thinking it would be fun and cute like her other work. Nope, this movie is garbage. First thing I noticed was that the sound quality is extremely poor which goes along hand in hand with the poor camera angles and shoots. The acting is very bad and the story line is simply ridiculous. Over all, it's not a movie worth buying."
Worst movie ever made
James F. Abbott | Ohio | 01/15/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Without a doubt, this is the worst movie ever made, in any genre, in any decade, by any movie making company since the begining of motion pictures. Who ever put Sandra Bullock's image on the cover of the DVD should be arrested for false advertising, since Sandra is only in the movie a few minutes, and isn't very good in her role anyway. What a bomb, and that's an understatement. Don't rent it, don't buy it, and don't ever watch it, unless you are completely without anything to do, and want to find out for yourself just how bad a movie can be."
