Trash, no wonder no one knows about it!
29 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would have never have even known about the film if it weren't for the ever famous James Rolf reviewing it, this is... Terrible! The jokes are as about as lame and cheap shot as the ones in Epic Movie, this is what a 80's Selzter and Frieberg film with no budget would be like! I'm surprised they even released this film, with a budget of about $20 I still doubt it made a profit.

I think what makes this worse is films like these are getting a budget today, even if the film disributors gave them a "$20" budget they're still stupid, did the creators really think the viewers would laugh at immature Sex and anti-religious jokes?

Conclusion: Awful -Cybersaur
