    Now, someone apologizes making one of the worst movies of all time.

    Maybe they saw Nostalgia Critic's review of that movie.

    Guess what? I lied.... hehehehe...

    :lol  just kidding. But in all seriousness, I don't even think an apology can make up for this cinematic abortion.

    Having actually read the article, I kinda feel bad for the guy. Just another case of a writer's work turning into something not recognizable to the author.

    And it makes Travolta come across as a douche and a lair. If anything, he should be the one apologizing.

    Who cares? The movie was not even shown at the cinema and the DVD cover looks so shitty that I wouldn't even bother renting it and wondered since when John Travolta plays in B-Movies. I guess nobody has ever seen the movie as nobody I know ever talked about the film and it wasn't even advertised anywhere. I guess that speaks for itself. The movie must be really shit.

    edit:
    Now I have read the text, great apology and nice reading! :D

    They have shown it at the cinema where you live? Interesting...

    edit:
    I checked Wikipedia and it seems that only in our country the movie was not shown at the cinema and went direct to video.
