10,000 Rubberface haters can't be wrong.
11 July 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I also picked up this movie by accident, I also bought it for, like, $2.00 in the bargain bin of my local video store. I love cheesy, bad movies and I figured I was in for a treat. Well, this had got to be one of the worst movies ever made. Ed Wood himself would refuse to claim responsibility for it. BE FOREWARNED: If you are also a lover of bad cinema, THIS IS NOT THE MOVIE FOR YOU. This movie is not even laughingly bad, it's just bad. There are absolutely no redeeming elements. My home/vacation movies have more substance... and THAT says a lot.
