I love seeing movies and you'll often find me going once or twice a week. I'll see just about any genre, except the blood and gore--did that in my teenage days.
As the movie release date approached, I was surprised that I didn't see any previews or trailers on this show. Heath Ledger's last mov
Perhaps I just missed all the promos. Maybe I switched the channel when it came on. But if the black out on advertising was any indication, I was a little worried about what I'd be seeing when the lights went out.
The truth is, as I sat in the theatre watching the movie, I felt like I was back in high school
First and foremost, Valentina, the girl who is supposed to be sixteen (and looks a lot older) spends the movie flirting, chasing and final
And, *SPOILER ALERT* another thing that bugged me was having the hero not so heroic at the end. Why have him in the movie in the first place? He was somewhat useful in helping with the carnival, but overall, he could have been removed from the movie and not been missed all that much.

Could I recommend it? Yeah. It's Heath's last one. But honestly, I'd wait until it came out on video. It's worth viewing, but not spending my hard earned cash on. JMHO. My vote? 3 out of 5 dreams!!!
Hugs and see ya tomorrow,
