The film's title is taken from the blues song by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Fattening Frogs for Snakes". Singer Patti Smith apparently brought this song to the director's attention; in the end credits she receives "special thanks" for its use. See more »
[Eva left acting class]
So when are you coming back to class?
It's a shame, little Eva. You're the only one I ever picked to make it. You got fucking talent, you know? You got a fucking gift.
Yeah, well, I got lots of gifts.
Yeah, I know...

Maybe it isn't THE worst but it sure comes close! The concept? A group of wanna-be actors moonlight as collection agents and thugs for a theatre impresario cum gangster. In between shooting people, including each other, they recite scenes from movies, everything from 'The Third Man' to 'Repo Man'. Does that sound stupid? You bet!
Watching this until the end is a chore. Only masochists or people with a perverse fascination for truly awful movies will manage it. Writer/director Amos Poe probably argues that "quoting" from other (MUCH better!) movies is some kind of post-modernist statement about art and creativity. Really it's because he doesn't have enough talent to write his own original dialogue and characters.
An unspeakably AWFUL movie that everyone involved with should be embarrassed about.
