A good-natured, light-hearted, wholesome family comedy about three frustrated dreamers -- David Larson (Lawrence Gardner), a struggling filmmaker; Glenn Brooks (Peter Petty), a wacky artist; and Glenn's brother Jack Brooks (Roy Conrad), a small-time entrepreneur -- who meet cute and decide to form a motion picture production company. Because David is the only one with any filmmaking experience, their attempt to produce a feature film sets the stage for a variety of bizarrely funny situations as they endeavor to cope with all of the unforeseen factors that affect the success or failure of their film.

The single worst movie of all time!
9 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jump Cut is impossible to watch without falling asleep. If anyone knows of a worse film, please let me know.

Here is my theory on how this film was made:

In 1970, a group of not so intelligent guys had a camera and wanted to make a porn. Without a script, they starting filming all the "acting" parts of the movie. Then they realized that no one was willing to take their cloths off and have sex with them. They soon lost interest in finishing the movie and put the cans of film on a shelf. There the cans sat until 1993 when a man from Jacksonville, Florida found them. He thought he found the missing footage from "Metropolis" and had them transferred to DVD. When the transfer came back, he watch it only to find it wasn't lost footage, it was crap. Feeling bad, he decided the only way to recoup his transferring costs was to released the film "as is" and see if anyone would buy it. He made 10 copies and found 10 suckers to buy them. Since 1993, those 10 copies have gone from person to person, each one watching this horrible film and feeling ripped off and in turn, each person wanting to recoup their loses.

I have one of those copies and I'm willing to stop this terrible chain of reaction by taking my loses ($2) and burning my copy. Anyone else with me? Please make the world a better place by helping me find the rest of the copies out there and destroying them...

Anyway, that's my theory on how this movie came to be!
