Spoilers!!! Just in case...






I have to admit, I kinda drifted off, but I finished it. :under
It tried to be very artsy, and special, and interesting, but it didn't do it for me. Jason had a couple of phone messages, and then he came on at the final minute or something... or did I miss him while I was reading tweets...? :oops: Not a lot of screen time to make a memorable impression, but he didn't do anything wrong with his bits as far as I could gather.

Conclusion: Movie kinda sucks, but not Jason. (I have a feeling I have given this "review" before) :lol

By all means, watch it if you want and you can see it for free (and legally - it's not worth risking virus for) but I wouldn't waste any money on this.

A frequent refrain.
Especially here.
