It's horrible...but Benny Rubin actually was capable of a lot worse!
27 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's funny, but I saw two of the comedian(??) Benny Rubin's films today--and considering how obscure he is, this is strange. However, after seeing the films, I can clearly understand why he's unknown today--his films stank! "Dumb Dicks" was absolutely unfunny and stupid...and it was MUCH better than "Julius Sizzer"--his other film.

The film begins with a bank robbery. During this loud robbery, two idiot detectives sleep in their car--completely oblivious to the robbery. When they FINALLY realize it's happening, they arrive too late--and with guns drawn. Panic naturally ensues and the huge gun one of these morons starts firing on its own (this is supposed to be wasn't). However, after embarrassing themselves, they are determine to salvage their reputations and capture the crooks. However, considering that Rubin and his partner are unfunny cretins, I didn't care one way or the other---I just wanted the film to end and wondered why any studio made these dreadful films.
