A movie about nothing
14 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Starhops is so bad that it makes "Gas pump girls" look like "Grapes of Wrath". I cannot believe that all the people involved in this decided one day to participate in this massive waste of time and energy. Were they all stoned on marijuana? I guarantee and bet all of my hard earned money that the actors of this puerile escapade never had acting jobs again in film. And rightfully so. Everything from the acting, film quality, to the inane plot is so sophomoric and idiotically amateurish that it's baffling that it was ever released. Was this some kind of sick joke made on the public? And who wasted there time seeing this? Whoever has the constitution and stamina to sit through this garbage is definitely a glutton for punishment.
