Hilarious
14 July 2003 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

If you like absurdly funny movies, you'll love this. It's completely random, amazingly creative, and just plain funny as all hell. As for some of the negative comments, the "fake commercial" premise is not supposed to be confusing; it's just funny to see disturbed cartoons followed by a Family Learning Channel tag. Trust me, watch this, and you won't be disappointed
