Are you a masochist? An Alan Smithee Film is for you!
I just saw this film, An Alan Smithee Film, and it is absolutely the most excruciating film I've ever seen. It's no wonder Arthur Hiller took his name off this film. I wasn't sure what was supposed to be funny and what was supposed to be straight. Even the outtakes during the credits were so not funny that it was painful to watch. In summary, avoid this movie at all costs. The world will be a better place for you if you do.
