In the "so bad it's funny" category...
27 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although giving the film a paltry "1" rating, I should perhaps add that if your rating scale is for, say, films that are so bad they are quite hilarious, then this one might rate an "8" or "9". And that is, of course, why we suffer through such escapades of cinematic ineptitude, because in these trying times of world strife and (to crib Tom Lehrer) "universal brouhaha" it is always nice to find a chuckle in films with no pretensions to grandeur, quality, or even basic talent.

"Little Godfather" is one such film. Highlights for me include: The "exploding dog" sequence near the start of the film- watch it slowly and laugh. Or the chase scene through Rome which suddenly ends up outside the city and in snow (even though there has been no snow through the entire film, and of course, no snow in the following scene). Or perhaps my favourite, the near-sentimental moment of the film when the arch-villain laments the passing of his son: just when you think there will be some emotional depth to the movie, his speech brings it all crashing back into overblown badness.

Grab some friends, have a beer, some popcorn perhaps, and let it wash over you. The fact that it is a "Wu-Tang Clan" DVD release only adds to the ridiculous ineptitude of it all. You can find 'em in the $2.88 bin at Wal-Mart. Better than spending $6 renting "The Day After Tomorrow"...
