Why, Hersel, why?????
11 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A nerdy professor and his lecherous sleazy old man lab partner build robotic ladies cause he can't get any in real life.They use a machine that makes the most annoying sounds I have EVER heard (well besides those that emanate from Al Franklin i mean). Supremely unfunny, boring, horribly acted, and a tedious LONG chore to sit through, all combine to make this one of the worst comedies that I have EVER seen. I hated this as much as Doctore Gore. And that, my friend, is a lot. This movie can be found as a bonus second feature on Something Weird's "Doctor Gore" DVD (Yet another reason never to buy said DVD EVER)

My Grade: F
