I told my brother about how much I didn’t like this movie, and afterwards he commented that my description had taken up more time than he wanted to spend on the film. With that in mind I’m going to try to keep this brief.
Basically, here’s the math.
Phone Booth + Shine = Grand Piano Continue reading Grand Piano (the Movie, not the Instrument)
Everyone once in a while, you need to see a really stupid movie.
