Audience Reviews for Sprung

Completely unwatchable. Neither entertaining nor funny. I enjoy both the genre and the time period of this movie, but this is the worst movie I have seen in recent memory, and Ive watched more than my share of bad movies. 1/2 star at best.

when you thought the two in love would of be the ones getting married it wind up being the two that couldnt stand each other or their friends being together so funny and romantical l.o.l.
