This movie should win the Anti-Academy Award. It is one of the most depressing and senseless movies of the decade. There is no point other than this serious man has misery in his life. Then when things start to go back together, he is informed of some major illness. Who wants to watch this theme? The movie had no great plot, no great actors, no great acting, no great point, no great special

WOW I was SO DISAPOINTED! I ************* to the anti-climactic end of that bleak almost painful long and drawn out torture! It was a wasted two hours of my life, I like almost every movie I watch, and am not the type to post a reveiw, but you know this movie was SO BAD that I had to post a reveiw!!

A good movie is a good movie regardless of race.unlike the above reviewers I will no blame the failure of this movie on ethnicity but rather talent.
