    This is just...

    Anybody who remembers this fodnly, find a copy or DVD. If Tale of Many Faces or Tale of Nightly Nieghbours can still stand proud after all these years why can't this dross?

    It's unoriginal and badly acted, with some contrived ideas and stilted dialouge. It throws a bunch of bland, emotionless characters together in a story about a typewriter making things really happen. The acting truly is awful, with the actors in school-play mode and the whole plot fumbles about.

    A bad story. Simple as that. It fails to be anything other than bog standard and is surely best avoided.moreless
