"I'm giving it one star only because I can't give it zero."
1 stars

This is possibly the second worst movie I've ever seen.

I go to this movie because I'm expecting horror. The preview looked kinda freaky and the chick at the box office said, "Oh, it's one of the scariest movies I've ever seen!" So I give it a whirl. What should have tipped me off is that Annette Benning and Robert Downey, Jr. are in it. Robert Downey, Jr. has never and will never be scary. That's about it. And Annette Benning, I have recently decided, is not a good actress at all.

Anyhow, I digress. I possibly jumped maybe.. twice.. in this entire movie. (And once was just because the guy I went with did the requesite "let's-poke-the-chick-so-she'll-jump!" action.) I wasn't frightened at all, I was on the borderline of going to sleep/falling into a coma. It wasn't anything near suspensful.

Just a little confusing because why would anyone want to make a movie that's so utterly boring and predictable? But.. If you want to see Robert Downey, Jr. dress up like a girl, then by all means, go see this movie.

Just don't pay the evening prices for it.
