16 November 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

If you've ever wondered why the Scotti Brothers music company didn't last long when they tried their hand in cinema, this movie would be a good place to start. It's hard to believe this actually got released widely enough that Siskel and Ebert took the time to review it on their show (both giving it thumbs down.) Poorly photographed, atrociously edited, and with a plot that's more of an idea than an actual story, given how little is done with anything that comes up. The gore sequences, while explicit, come off as a desperate attempt to entertain more than anything else. There is one eye-catching visual (during the flat tire sequence) that will get your attention and make you wonder how they did it. But unless you also happen to like seeing talented actors of some fame get humiliated, it's not worth the effort to see. Though afterwards you will be able to say truthfully, "I saw Timothy Bottoms' bottom!"
