This is why you need to put EFFORT in movies
1 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"I'll say this Quadaro, he's all heart. *shows him in heart costume*" This line pretty much sums up this horrid movie. In this movie that was written in 5 minutes, we get a bunch of bad jokes, and gags that make absolutely no sense whatsoever. This is supposed to parody Rocky, but about half of it isn't even close to the Rocky movie. If you actually put effort into your film, you won't end up like this, even if the film sucks. At least people will give you credit for the effort. This film has no redeeming qualities at all. There is nothing of value or great remembrance in this movie. It is pure trash, and there is no wonder not many heard of it.
