The old "Kiss"-off....
4 June 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bad film. Cheap film. Embarrassing film. Easy tax write-off. Fever dream. Horrible joke. Such descriptions came to mind while I was watching "Kiss Daddy Goodbye", but they just weren't descriptive enough.

It's bad enough that Fabian once again tries his hand at acting; what's worse is what he's stepped in here as a deputy in a coastal town where a man (Rand) is killed by a motorcycle gang and his psychic kids (always nice to have around in such a pinch) resurrect him and get their revenge by having their zombified "Daddy" kill them one by one.

Not that there's anything wrong with resurrecting your Dad from the dead: you get to paint cool Egyptian symbols on his face, have him drive you everywhere you want to go and you should see Dad swim through the sand! That's right: through as in UNDERNEATH the beach to emerge, "Jaws"-like, and knock off some unsuspecting teens right in the middle of their night-time beach party. TIDBIT - in a movie like this, it's NEVER a good idea to have a party, no matter what time of day.

Burns shows up as a case worker who wonders where the kids' "Daddy" is and fails to put two and two together as fast as any other living human being would, and instead falls in love with Deputy Dawg...I mean FABIAN, who is busy keeping an eye on everyone EXCEPT the little zombie-makers while the biker gang wonders how their number is dropping so rapidly while....

But enough already. This is Bad Movie Heaven, so to speak. They even have the gall to make a "Psycho" reference halfway through. And if you can find worse music (a BANJO??!) to put to a "thrilling" climactic chase, you must have seen a lot of movies in your time.

Why do they make films like this: to waste my time? To make me sit up at night, worrying about what else is out there on the video shelf? To keep Fabian employed? To show kids how easy it is to make their family members zombies in five easy lessons? To teach bikers not to mess with psychic kids?

The answers to these questions are yes; probably, the bums; maybe between 50s revival gigs; perhaps, if it were more instructive and Lord, what else WOULD teach them?

No stars for this flop-eroo. "Kiss" 92 minutes "Goodbye".
