Nothing ever happens in the small New England town of Rutland. But everything changes one autumn day when two high school students disappear and a dead body is discovered in the woods. This quiet community is turned upside down as inept local authorities attempt to put all the pieces together. Will the struggling cable access reporter crack the case? Can the school janitor's dead father help him find the deerheaded man? Is the crusty detective ever going to get over not being passed up for grand marshal of the parade? Written by
"Rutland USA" may not be the single worst movie ever made, but it certainly comes close. Amateur films I can handle, even come to enjoy, but this film was so boring, so witless, so eager to delve into its own paradoxically abysmal plot that I was disgusted from the start. The "acting" (if one can call it that) is suited for a sixth-grade play, the music seemingly composed by a two-year old on an electric guitar, and the plot epitomizes the height of low-grade excretions found in so many made-for-home video fare. The movie is not a total loss, however, as there are still funny scenes and characters that make one laugh even as they grimace at the dialogue and hammy delivery. The Detective is possibly the only palatable element of the entire film, although even his stuttering dodgey abilities cannot save this from the K-Mart bargain bin.
