HORRIBLE
31 December 2003 | by TraderVicks31See all my reviews

Oh my god. this is awful. It was on the other night pretty late so I watched it. i regret that i did. There are a few scenes in the movie that question why this movie was even made. how about the scenes where the stepfather gets angry and goes by himself chopping wood or whatever while he is yelling at himself. or how about when hes playing catch with the wheel chair kid and takes him out of the chair and asks him to walk. this movie wasnt intended to be funny but its actually hilarious. im shocked that actors could be so bad.
