Worst Movie I've ever been able to get through
25 April 2005 | by (Mountain View, CA) – See all my reviews

I have run across one or two movies worse than this, but they were so abrasive that I couldn't sit through them. This one, while horrible, is saved by a 60 minute running time and nothing too unpleasant on the screen. In its 60 minutes it runs through at least 6 different genres. There is no nudity, no believable action, and puppet-show level special effects. I think that it was an intentional spoof, as the acting is about at the level of Pearl and her sidekicks from the Mystery Science Theatre, and I refuse to believe anyone could achieve that while trying to seriously act. This film is only for those viewers so jaded by everything else out there that they want something "different". This is not like anything you've seen before, I sincerely hope. It might also serve as inspiration for some aspiring film-maker as I think any 12 year old with their parent's video camera could produce something better.
