Storyline

Joe Dante directs this story of the glamour, the glitter, the magical allure of Hollywood... and not a speck of it rubs off on Miracle Pictures, where "If it's a good picture, it's a Miracle." This is a hilarious tribute to the unsung heroes who grind out the B movies massacred by critics, but nursed fondly in the hearts of film fans everywhere. Written by Concorde - New Horizons (with permission).

terrible movie, fascinating document
13 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is appallingly bad, but the DVD commentary track is very interesting. I would give just the movie a 1, but I gave it a 7 because of the commentary track (I probably will never watch the movie without that). The movie was made by a lot of kids working for Roger Corman (who started an amazing number of talented movie people), and it was shot in 10 days for $50,000 -- any stunt that was complex or expensive (in fact, almost any stunt at all) was taken from another Corman movie. There are various nonsensical actions that characters take to preserve continuity with the borrowed clips, but there are plenty of problems with lighting and saturation that make it clear where this other footage starts and ends.

If you are interested in how movies are made, this one is rudimentary enough to have a lot of works still visible, and the commentary by Dante, Arkush, and Davison removes even more of the mystery...
