A brilliant bad movie
29 February 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There are really bad movies, and movies that are so bad they are just great, and this is one of those movies. After seeing all the not so good comments i feel i have to stick up for this movie. The story is stupid, the acting is terrible, the plot doesn't exist, but it all makes for one really funny movie, and i get the feeling this was at least partly intentional. I've got it on DVD, maybe it has been edited for TV, some of the really funny bits are also comments that can be hard to hear. And anyone who didn't like anything about this movie must have skipped the credits, if you do see this movie make sure you read the credits all the way through, they had me in tears.
