I'm so disappointed. A decent concept with a mildly original situation was ruined by horrible acting, screenwriting, and directing.So, all caps indicates screaming? Okay: NOBODY TALKS LIKE THAT!!!!!For the first two thirds of the movie, the dialog was just not believable. Kelsey Grammer and Pamela Reed played their roles as film producers credibly, only slightly over the top for effect, as intended. But most other characters speak in hushed, breathy voices nearly the entire time -- I kept expecting the ghost of Marilyn Monroe to report for her close-up. Best friend Jason spouted lengthy speeches, too long and too floral to feel like human communication, more like a space alien trying to "pass" and not really fooling anyone.Usually I just go with the flow when a film shows people making horribly stupid choices, or bad decisions, or acting like jerks: yep, that's part of humanity, who can argue with that? Meridith Scott Lynn's insufferably analytical Erika I could accept. But that Erika and Bradford Tatum's Caleb stayed together more than a weekend, let alone for years? Nyet! It's more credible that you've taken a free ride on the Khaleesi's dragons.In the Laughing Out Loud category, from the IMDB Storyline: "a lot of nudity." No, not even in 1999. That must have been a producer-supplied marketing ploy to compensate for the MPAA's Puritan dogma, which stamped an "R" on this film's mild content. It doesn't matter: more nudity, flying monkeys, musical interludes, almost nothing could have saved this film.Better writing and directing might have.
