I hate to use the term turd parade to describe a movie and then I rented Babel and changed my mind. I could have spent the time doing the dishes or slamming my hand in the door.
I should have known it was a crappy movie from the trailer. Everytime the trailer came on tv I wanted to see the movie less than the time before. If when you see advertising for a movie and it makes you want to avoid the movie, do it.
Avoid Babel at all costs.
