Terrible low budget film and I mean LOW
28 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't enjoy bad movies that make sad attempts at ripping off the popular genre of the time. Low Ball WISHES it was a Tarantino film ( a good Tarantino film not a bad one) but it's just a bad film filled with clichés, bad sound, bad acting, bad writing and BAD direction. I almost had a stroke during the scene where the Penthouse Pet (seriously) is tied to leather straps while a dominatrix whips her.

It's shocking when junk like this gets made- there have to be one hundred worthy scripts out there that are better then this. I know that nobody sets out to make a bad film but one would think that at some point SOMEBODY would tell the "director" or the producer that they are making a disaster. When one thinks of good first films - Swingers for instance, you just have to realize that there is no excuse for this sort of embarrassment.

Skip this.
