Storyline

Construction worker Donald is having a hard time getting anything good to eat since his wife has decided to only cook gourmet foods. That and her constant harping cause him to snap, and he whacks her. Somewhere in the confusion he comes up with a new use for the microwave oven, and begins to eat much better. Soon he's experimenting with different recipes. And different meats. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Funny spoof of T&A and horror films
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had this film on VHS but lost it. Hadn't watched it for years and bought the DVD (which is VERY GOOD quality). I often wondered why out of so many "bad movies" this one has such an affectionate following and after watching it again I see why. Underneath all the bad acting and worse jokes there lies a heart. Also...the girls are hot. For me the irreverence of "Frosty the Snowman" doing these perverted acts was very funny...unfortunately one joke can't carry a movie. I'm giving it a 10 because for whatever reason it got under my skin and has stayed there for years. Also I'm giving the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt. I think they achieved exactly what they set out to do.
