Gah! It's Sheen!

If this movie shows up anywhere near you, be it on video, pay cable, wherever, run immediately home and shower. Scrub yourself till you bleed. Even then, though, you'll have a hard time getting the stink off you.

Oh, this movie sucks. Sucks hard. Mostly for one reason: Charlie (or is it Charles now?) Sheen.

His manner of acting is limited to basically a monotone delivery with the occasional smirk that comes off less like Jack Nicholson and more like Charlie Sheen doing Chistian Slater doing Jack Nicholson. Apparently Dad got all the acting ability in this family, huh, Chuck?

Plus, it's a movie about skydiving. Skydiving. The most exciting part about skydiving is the jump and the fall. That's it. To make an entire movie out of it, where the skydiving sequences serve as backdrop to what in a normal movie would be plot, but in this film is a mess?

Ugh. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth just thinking about this movie.

As Charlie Sheen movies go, this is the worst. As a movie, it still sucks pretty badly.
