  • 1 star "Did not read the reviews. The cast looked interesting, so I rented it. Have to agree it was a wate of time. Found it to be cheesy. Slow pace; Girl dressed in her bady doll sleep clothes at all times of the day, just waiting to what, goto bed?; mechanic who says someone put sugar in a gas tank, really, in 2015 people put sugar in locked gas tanks, and the mini cooper has a carburator..... So the rest of the plot is the same old same old....not worst your time."
