Pay It Forward

Rated 1.0 Vast amounts of talent from the likes of Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and the somewhat frightening Haley Joel Osment are wasted in this pappy, manipulative, evil little movie. Spacey plays a schoolteacher who implores his new class to make the world a better place. Osment plays a student who takes the assignment seriously and comes up with the good deed system highlighted in the movie’s title. Just a lame rehash of so many dreary domestic dramas, equipped with a Hollywood ending that is embarrassing in its lameness. Osment needs to be steered towards more lighthearted fare. Hated this movie!
