Must find and own it!
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My favorite quote: "Do you realize how long it takes to make butter brickle?" (after cops destroy his batch for seemingly no reason.) "Are you sorry you didn't find anything and wrecked my place or are you just sorry you didn't find anything?"

I love this movie. It's the worst made movie I've ever seen. I wish Mystery Science 3000 was still on cause this would be an excellent movie for them. Seriously, this is a must see.

The acting is absolutely horrendous, but they really see, like they are trying, and this makes it that much funnier. The cheesy script simply can't be beat... not even with an ice cream scoop.
