I couldn't wait until it's over !

One of the most boring movies ever ! Not funny at all, the story is good, but it would've been made into a better movie, Acting is very weak, The characters don't really match ! There a love story, but you can't feel the chemistry between the characters ! It's pure boring, don't watch it !

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
not rated for age
