If you arrived here you're "just in time" to watch a bad movie!
26 June 2012 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

What a terrible disappointment this film was! I was expecting a nice film about the thematic the trailer suggests (crossed lives; destiny; etc) and not this garbage where broken cellular phones speak words or ghostly GPS leads the way or even hillbilly guys are allergic to latex!! I mean, all this is so stupid and absurd! The plot is silly, the characters are silly (excluding one or two), the soundtrack is unbearable (not to mention the scene when some popular Portuguese music is playing in a motel in California!!), the development and the disclosure of the plot are also annoying (I could use words like boring, pathetic, absurd, stupid, unrealistic; but no, all of those "coincidences" are just annoying!). As said, when I watched the trailer and I saw that scene when Joaquim d'Almeida is in the desert ready to commit suicide and the voice of the GPS said "Turn back you are in a wrong way to your destination" I found it a very good premise and I was expecting a nice film… I got this silly drama full of stupid lines (the screenplay is terrible!) and pathetic disclosures instead! Too bad to be true! I score it 3/10.
