Should have been a made for TV movie.

A great cast wasted on a poor script. In order for a movie to be received well the viewer must be able to relate and sympathize with at least one of the characters. Hollywoodland did not present anyone that I could develop an afinity for so I ended up thinking "so what". Too drawn out, too slow paced. A waste of time and money.
