The Most Painful Thanksgiving Special in History
24 November 2003 | by (Vancouver, British Columbia) – See all my reviews

I had the chance of catching this show on television yesterday because my friend's "monster truck" was featured in the made-for-television movie. For me, and my friend, that was the highlight of this horrific production.

I can't tell you how awful this movie was -- but I will try. The script was terrible and the concept was extremely lame. If I had had any choice, I would have watched the first five minutes and then turned it off.

I don't understand how this screenplay made it from an executive's desk to the production floor with people showing confidence in it. Who in their right mind would even fund such a script! I hear some of the National Lampoon's writers are auctioning themselves off on eBay and I can understand why. I would have laid off (*cough, fired*) writers whose only potential was churning out such idiotic tripe.

In a nutshell, National Lampoon is in trouble.

The film's struggle to make people laugh falls flat on its face. The characters are not real, the actor's are not having any fun, and the director didn't know what to do with the material (not that any director would know what to do with it either). Combine that all together and you have a film where you can actually see the director shouting at the audience: LAUGH, DAMMIT!

This formula movie has no reason to exist. Nothing in this film made you care about it. None of the characters were interesting, none of the situations are even close to reality and one knows that careers are in trouble when such garbage hits the screen. Viewing this film will expose you to the following: a stupid plot, Los Angeles dwelling socialites, Idaho living yokels, cell-phone addicted teens, animals with diseases, farting pseudo-uncles, a disregard for gun safety, and my friend's truck.

Anyway, I am tired of writing this review because this film doesn't even deserve to have a review. Just know, it plain sucks. If you like movies and value your time on this planet, save your two hours and watch something else. Maybe, National Lampoon's Vacation, I know it was good.

Oh, my friend's truck was cool. I had the chance of catching this show on television yesterday because my friend's "monster truck" was featured in the made-for-television movie. For me, and my friend, that was the highlight of this horrific production.

Oh, yah. My friend's truck was cool.
