So awful it left me in convulsions of laughter at the end.
5 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

So awful it left me in convulsions of laughter at the end. But beware there is a lot of bad filmmaking to sit through to get to the pay off. Oh the writing is exquistely bad, which helps to enhance the bad acting. The sound track is amazingly bad considering all the hip-hoppers involved in this project. It's a runaway parody of bad music video that lasts 90 minutes too long. It's not the best bad movie bad ( Deathship ), but the ending is so absurd, I was left in convulsions of laughter.
