I funnier movie has yet to be made
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying, that I had my doubts. I consider myself to be a film connoussier of sorts, however this move was so bad that I had to laugh. In fact, I think it is the best movie that has ever fit into the "so bad it's funny" category. From the bad acting to the ill-formed storyline, this movie tries desperately to make a lot of sense, but fails to do so in every respect. For example, the main character, Ryan, receives a pair of "Heely" shoes (the entire movie it seems, is one, overgrown add for those shoes) from his grandmother. BUT...they have not wheels, so poor Ryan still cannot fit in. That is when he somehow ends up at an isolated store (it is randomly on the shore of some lake), where a mysterious guy dressed in mid-ninteenth century dress from the American West tells him something anectdotal and then takes the wheels off of a model plane and gives them to Ryan. My two favorite scenes however, are the one where a girl randomly has two extra ATVs, and gives them to the bullies giving chase to Ryan, and the time that Ryans small dog is kidnapped by the bully and considered as a candidate for Guard Dog at the bully's cousins guard post at some random processing plant, which Ryan flies out of. If I has all the time in the world, I could not tell you how much this movie sucks, but it sucks really funny.
