A SUPRIZINGLY GOOD MADE FOR TV PROJECT

I saw "The Girl Gets Moe" on HBO and normally I see the world premieres to laugh at how lame they are but this one I enjoyed. It was an action packed witty comedy that could have scored on the art circut if it was given a chance. It was a reminder of the horrable "The Big Hit" and had some essence of the Austrian road movie "Kiss or Kill." The movie was refreshing and bright, it would have been an awesome alternative film if given a release, it is a bigger atrocity then the Polygram scandal over "The Gingerbread Man." Rent it on video it's under a diffrent title and with any luck it isn't cut or edited in any form! It was the best "world premire" on HBO, and a movie that killed other low bugget action movies with actors that should be sent away from Hollywood but look good.
