Worst acting in film history
23 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me to take the time to write something on this site I have to be pretty motivated. Unfortunately, in this case, it is because I have never seen a movie quite this bad (and I have suffered through losers like Mountaintop Motel Massacre). Usually it is the script and direction that make a movie this bad. And don't get me wrong -- those qualify in this case as well. But I have truly never seen acting as bad as in this movie -- I have seen better performances in grade school plays. Earl Owensby is laughably bad -- he is the worst in a cast that is comprised of truly terrible actors. The only positive thing I will say about this experience is that it is so bad it is almost worth renting with some friends for an unintentional comedy.
