Awful movie!
29 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

Is not good to have it even n the background when you're doing something else... better turn off your TV. The acting of Hilton is terrible!!! she is not an actress, she should go back to do... what is that she does???

Mario can do better than this and the rest of the cast also... this kind of movie just put them at the end of the list of actors that you'll like to see next time.

If you're browsing your TV channels and have this movie as a maybe... please keep clicking and look for something else.

My 3 year old girl who was very exited by the commercial of the movie because all the Christmas stuff and the dogs was more bored than us... this should tell you all.
