... to the ridiculous

But doesn't think much of 88 Minutes: "88 Minutes can't even live up to its title," writes Todd McCarthy. "With 19 — count 'em, 19 — producers, including director Jon Avnet, ensuring that every aspect of the film, from the script to the star's haircut, is ludicrous in the extreme, the picture easily snatches from Revolution the prize as Al Pacino's career worst. Available on DVD in some territories as early as February 2007 and rolled out theatrically in France and elsewhere beginning in May of last year, this gape-inducing fiasco is getting a token domestic release that at least saves its star the indignity of a dump straight to homevid."

If anyone's seen this, do tell.
