Enid: This is so bad it's gone past good and back to bad again.
If the Mitchell Brothers were looking for a sure-fire tax loss they might have cranked out a movie like "The Last Run" (2004). They would have taken perverse amusement from plugging a has-been child-star into a grind-house level comedy. Fred Savage was always more narrator than actor and the movie's voice-over commentary probably seemed like a good fit.
Unfortunately the script is moronic even by Mitchell Brothers standards and there are no likely "Ivory Snow" mothers in the cast; the women in this movie look like aging escort service girls lured out of a local AA meeting or bowling alley. You know these marginal actresses are high mileage because the script calls for the male characters to incessantly discuss how young and beautiful they are.
It does have a pre-"Enchanted" (and then unknown) Amy Adams in the cast. You mostly know this because she gets top billing on the 2007 promotional poster and DVD package (a marketing thing); although she is only in about 10% of the footage, and even then as secondary player in the scenes. During her brief appearances she is responsible for the films only funny moments; not because of what she says but because of the way she says it. She has enough natural comedic talent to make something out of nothing even in a crash-and-burn turkey like "The Last Run". Unless you absolutely have to see everything Adams has appeared in, there is no reason to seek out this DVD.
Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
