Audio/visual unsynchronized: John Ramsey takes away Tim's moonshine jug, and throws it to break it. The jug is not actually seen hitting the ground and breaking, but we do see the broken bits of the jug after it has been broken. Yet, there is silence - no sound of the breaking jug is heard.See more »
Mickey Brown:Yeah, that's right. Now you know. You and your dime store stuff. You're cheap. A cheapie. I didn't know who cheap you were until I met her.
Jada:She hates your guts! You're cheap to her! She'd rather kill herself first!

look out!!! bombs away!!!, 1 November 2003
Author: KDWms from Pocono Summit, PA

I rate "1", movies which are so awful that the actors seemingly know it; and "2", awful films wherein the actors seem to be still tryin'. So this gets a "2" from me. Sometimes I reach the "total loser" conclusion and point to the inferior sound and/or lighting in the mix. But even though those elements are adequate here, this misfortune accomplishes "sheer mess" status by virtue of nothing more than most of the cast, and, the extreme unbelievability of the unfolding developments. And - oh yeah - I WILL say that some of the dialogue was noticeably re-recorded AFTER the action; "noticeable", for example, as one character incongruously exhales a giggle, simultaneous with his swallowing moonshine from a jug. In a nutshell, the plot consists of a retiree and his daughter butting heads with a quintet of visitors on the day after a series of nuclear bombs have wiped out the rest of humanity. (THEY are not effected because of the strong updrafts in their neighborhood.) My only other storyline sentence refers to the contradictoriness of much of what follows; contrived, it seems, as we go along; not thought-out. It's one of those classic, head-shaking, shoulder-shruggers which makes you smile because it's so ridiculous.
