Movie Review by Zara
May 3rd, 2007

Tension mounting...

I had high hopes for this movie. I like Steve Zahn and I like looking at Paul Walker. And occasionally Leelee spits out a good performance. But for all of the good tension that is built up in the beginning, the movie quickly devolves into something generic and predictable, offering nothing special.

Until you get to the scene where Walker and Zahn walk into a diner buck naked. I'll admit that part made me smile, seeing their bare asses.

THAT IS...

Until I found out that they both had stunt/body doubles for it. Come on! It's ass! And it's not like the two of them don't have nice bodies. So why the f*ck would they have relied on body doubles? Especially when you get to see their nude torsos as they clutch their (taped and covered) junk. Why not actually bare their asses?

Boo. Hiss.

Paul Walker sucks I have to hear about him all the time from the old ball and chain.

He's actually a really nice guy, from everything that I've read about him.

Wow. I actually loved this movie. I'm going to have to revisit it and write a review myself.

This film to me was a letdown but in a way I actually liked it
It wasnt creepy or scary or anything it was just kind of fun!
and Paul Walker does have some good roles like Into The Blue but other than that he isnt a good actor and I can't believe they had body doubles thats stupid, not saying I liked seeing their bare asses I actually hated seeing them but if it is true they had doubles thats the dumbest thing I'd ever heard

Just hearing the name Paul Walker makes me drool.
