    I’m not delivering a hot take when I say this thing is dreadful. There’s not a single redeeming factor I can come up with. It is just a string of “scenes” that goes on for an eternal 90 minutes until the credits mercifully roll. I’m glad I own this film so I can always have access to it. My brain is mush.
