What's Wrong With You?
21 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What happened? When you went to the video store, did someone already rent Beast of Yucca Flats? Eegah was out? Doris Wishman films were all on a five day rental? This is a super low in the history of cinema. Bruce Lee isn't remotely in sight and although the opening title sequence is very, very promising in a Zombie Vs. Ninja sort of way, it quickly, quickly falls off.

The thing I remember most about this film were an Asian guy and a blonde American girl driving around LA trying to find a place to rent.

I think that's all this movie was about. Two people apartment-hunting. It could have been an interesting premise, if it was directed by Wim Wenders, but alas, this is just Z-grade, super lame terribleness that makes Alice in Acidland look visionary. Yikes.

The dubbing is atrocious and the acting makes Andy Warhol's stars seem like Sir Richard Chamberlin.

Watch anything else or better, observe paint drying on the wall, expand your mind reading the dictionary or telephone book or get an addiction. Whatever you do: AVOID BRUCE LEE FIGHTS BACK FROM THE GRAVE!
