A terminal case of bad comedy
27 March 2016 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

As you probably know, the name "Alan Smithee" is the standard pseudonym a director uses when he feels that their movie has been altered from his original vision, which is apparently what happened here. But to be honest, from what we do get to see, I don't think a director's cut would be that much better than this current version. It's true that some scenes in this version play out in a slightly incomprehensible manner. But even the scenes that do make sense suffer from the fact that the level of comedy is simply not funny at all. The humor is for the most part extremely lame, but also at times racist and homophobic. Other script problems include not only the fact that the three central protagonists are really obnoxious and irresponsible, but that there is no real plot for the first seventy or so minutes of this eighty nine minute movie. The only person connected with this movie who more or less survives is actor Geoffrey Lewis; his scenes do have a little spark, and he comes across as somewhat likable. But when a movie can't get any fun out of a cameo by cult movie star Sydney Lassick, you know something is really wrong.
