The worst of films and the best of films all at once!!!
20 April 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

To anybody who has not seen SHOTGUN I urge you to find a copy ASAP! The standard of acting and scriptwriting is so appalling that this film is easily the worst ever made BUT that is exactly why it is also the best! Anybody with a sense of humour will be unable to contain themselves after just one minute of this flick. It is outrageously funny. The pumping 80s rock soundtrack oozes cheese and adds to the film immensely. The characters all reflect one cliché or another, especially Stuart Chapin as Ian Jones, the star of the film. Watch out for his legendary cowboy hat and excessively long coat, real gems. The wordplay is so laboured and stereotypical that no sane person could ever take the film seriously. The way it is filmed also reminds me of 80s style American daytime soaps, very cheap indeed! It will only be available to buy in the cheapest of shops, no more than 50p at most, even on DVD! Go and buy this film NOW! It will provide you with a lifetime of comedy!
