Shoe String Movie Done Right
29 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie had a whopping budget of only $8,000, and it shows.

The thing is, the director knew what he was doing, and made a very enjoyable movie.

Acting is corny, the set design came from a yard sale, and there is no real plot outside of spoofing Star Wars ... BUT it is an enjoyable movie to watch, and has a lot of humor.

It is hard not to chuckle at a guy wearing a welding hood, who's catch line is "Darth Nader, naughty person".

It is also interesting the movie is self aware, such as it's catch phrase "You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss $3 good by"

Excellent example of a good movie, made with no budget!
