16 March 2003 | by (Ypsilanti, Michigan) – See all my reviews

This is great. It should have been on HBO instead of project greenlight. This is really funny. We see the real turmoils and troubles one may face while working on a troma film. Some may think it is all goofing around to make another low budget film. Well that is true, but it also deals with the stupidity you might face while trying to make a movie. My favorite scenes have to be when lloyd is telling the 2nd ad how to put the script revisions into the script, and when a 10 year old is pitching a movie idea to lloyd. I laughed really hard with this one. It is great.
