The California Water Wars were real and that very same water led to the growth and population spurt of Southern California.

Throw in some intrigue, incest, Jack Nicholson and John Huston - what's not to like?
Boring. As. Hell.

Lame dialogue. Lame pace (exceptionally slow). Lame acting outside Jack.
