Amazingly bad
1 May 2002 | by (Detroit, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Rarely does one see a modern silent comedy, and one often wonders what one would be like. Well, this is pretty much it. Don't get me wrong, this is a VERY bad movie. But overall I found it enjoyable. The characters are SOOO absurd, and the attempts at humor are SOOO pathetic, one cannot help but laughing. This movie is so bad that MST3K couldn't make it any funnier, it's glaringly pathetic enough as is. As long as you don't take this movie at all seriously, I think you'll enjoy watching it.
