Well, I liked it
I decided to give this one a shot after seeing James Belushi and Denise
Richards on the credits. That, and the fact that there was no review

And I don't regret it, because I ended up liking it. The acting was
believable without any of the forced over-the-top or wooden
performances that you see in crappy movies where you are constantly

The lead character which plays Sam was natural, the role fit him like a

other characters delivered good performances too.
I wouldn't know where to classify this but it certainly isn't a comedy.
The story is somewhat original (at least I haven't seen another movie

All in all, I didn't end up regretting the time I spent on it (as I do

blockbuster but I think you'll find it a quite good way to spend one
and half hours on a stormy afternoon.
