If you have trouble getting to sleep...... rent this movie!!!!! It is a really slow movie that never gets off the ground.

not my kind of movie. when things go wrong ... and the characters are embarrassed or horrified, I cannot engage with the movie. but if you are drawn to disaster ... you may enjoy this movie.

I did not finish watching.
