MICRO BUDGET: BIG FAT FLUBS
6 September 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Out of enough pesos for a better night out on Magsaysay, I saw this movie for $.35 (American!) on the Navy base at Subic in 1979. The major problem wasn't the plot, which was fairly interesting, but it was completely overshadowed by the incredible number of times the boom mike fell down into nearly every shot. I can just imagine the director (Rod Amateau) cringing at the dailies... it makes his Gilligan's Island efforts look like DeMille epics. There's also an incongruent appearance by a Coke machine in a parking lot, that leaves you wondering why it's there, except it gives the lead something to vent his anger upon. Funny what you remember 24 years later, huh? Would've been better as a ABC Tuesday Night Movie instead of a feature. Watch for Danny DeVito.
