I just saw FINDING BLISS,and gave it the same rating.However,Sobiesky was alright,re-gaining my respect for her as an actress.

I re-watched it,to make sure if Al Pacino really should be in my "Worst performances of all times" list.I doubted at first,but thanks to how he says his lame speeches in a lamer way he'll stay there.LeeLee Sobiesky is also very dissapointing.

The ending was too abrupt.But there were some thrills and the mystery seemed to be well written.

I give this 4/10 - D - 4,0.

I made a list of the worst performances of all times:

Al Pacino is in it.

Either her agent just isn't trying any more, or she just needs to pay her rent and she couldn't care less about script quality.

I just watched it and thought it sucked ass. It's probably the worst film of Al
Pacino's career next to Gigli. It was so depressing seeing this inept
drama unfold, and how it failed to be the suspenseful mystery that it clearly
aspires to be, with its ludicrously incoherent plot to the choppy acting to the
ridiculous twist at the end. The only thing that interested me was how many
times they had to do Al Pacino's hair while filming this.

WOW was this BAD!  Easily the worst movie I've seen this year, and it may well go on my Top 25 All-Time Worst List.  LeeLee Sobiesky should be a shoo-in for Worst Supporting Actress.  The sheer awfulness of her performance was the most entertaining part of the movie.  Her acting in the BIG DRAMATIC ENDING may make lowlight reels in the Pantheon of Bad Performances.  Even worse than her bursting-into-tears-while-being-handed-the-baby scene in Deep Impact.

Pacino was bad, but really just in an "I'm phoning it in" way. 

By far worst screenplay of the year.  My wife and I kept coming up with more and more ridiculous scenarios that might make some sense out of it in the end, each of which turned out to be better and more plausible than the actual ending. 

All-in-all, a delightfully "Oh my God is this awful," "What the hell is going on here??" "Why in the world did Pacino agree to this  one?" kind of movie that will lift your bad movie watching spirits. 

HILARIOUS!

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOLIERS, IF YOU GIVE A RAT'S ASS                                         

This "movie" was one of the most idiotic I've ever seen. Al Pacino was painful. His speech about his sister was so painful, that my mom said: "He not to good in this". He was worse than Ed Burns. The killer was obvious from her introduction. "Her" being Leelee Sobieski. At first, I thought she was mildly retarded, when Pacino talked about only telling your dog about cases, she said: "But not your parrot". When, she showed up "injured", it was obvious. She deserves WORST SUPPORTING ACTRESS for this and "In The Lame Of The Kink: A Dung-eon Siege Tale". The script, almost, made me appreciate "What Happens In Vegas". It made me reconsider lower it on the bad movie scale. Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor (Neal "I Know Who Killed Me" McDonough), Worst Supporting Actresses (Leelee and Alicia Witt), Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple (Pacino and Witt or Deborah Kara Unger).

I think there is nothing to debate about this matter, if 88 Minutes is a best or worst movie, because everyone of us has a unique definition of a good movie.

And actually, for me 88 Minutes is a very nice movie !!!

I actually had high hopes for this movie because it starred Al Pacino, who's a brillant actor and hasn't been in movies in quite a while.

Instead, it turned out to be a broken, muddled mess that just dragged on and on.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Roeper also called 88 MINUTES "a symphony of awful {and} quite possibly the worst movie of the year so far..."

I saw Richard Roeper's review on-line, and according to him we should not only give a Razzie to Pacino, but also to Al's big hair and fake tan. Here's a LINK to see his review...

After all the horrible reviews, 88 minutes is just a curiosity piece at this point. Pacino is still a fine actor, and I can forgive him for curtailing acclaim for a paycheck every now and then. Are we forgetting the Halle Berry Razzie win and speech? Since 88 minutes is bound to head for DVD in a blink and a wink, give him his Razzie...and move on!

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: You forget that Pacino's competition for Worst Actor of 2008 includes RAZZIE Icon Sylvester Stallone in the execrable RAMBO. The reviews suggest Al could give Sly a real run for the spraypaint, but my money would still be on Stallone to "win" in the end...

Hasty Manic
I am still looking for a movie worse than 'Manos: The Hands of Fate.' Alas, I remain ever hopeful!

I do not intend to see Nacho Libre because it looks stupid. And I will never watch Drillbit Taylor.
