Seriously...I haven't walked out of a movie in almost ten years but walked out of this one about an hour or so into it but easily could have walked out 45 minutes into it. Ridiculous dialogue, horrible editing and some of the absolute worst monlogues by an actress in the history of filmmaking. Rosario Dawson should be embarrassed...and she should mail me a check for the cost of my movie ticket.
