One problem. Who is this movie for?
22 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The tag line for this movie says it all. "The lowbrow comedy for the highbrow crowd." The people who like the lowbrow comedy won't understand the spoof, and the people who saw the highbrow movies won't enjoy see them spoofed. The crowd for this movie paper thin, but I happen to be part of the crowd. I loved this movie, I thought it was one of the funniest things I've seen in a looooong time, but I understand the low score because it is not for everyone. See the movie and have a laugh, it's hit or miss. If you are like me, you will love this flick, if you're not as the movie says: "What did you expect? IT'S AN INDEPENDENT MOVIE!"
