Quotes

Jennifer McKenzie: Life was perfect. Until one day, a terrible day, something happened. One of those events that could turn your world upside down. I got an e-mail. And guess who it was from? Good old Windbag: my *grandmother*. She's coming to visit me. Out of the blue. What for, why now? And as usual, nothing but dramatic *bullshit* came out of her mouth.

Unless, of course, you are looking for a terribly-god-awful-cheesy-not-even-to-be-considered-a-horror movie. There are so many things wrong with this movie I don't even know where to start.

For one, the movie cover shows exactly why directors and producers hire brilliant artists to make their crap movies come across as decent looking. Never judge a book by its cover.

Being somewhat specialized in movie editing, the general objective of a film is to let the story flow smoothly, both visually and audio-wise. This film was like a hurricane in the Atlantic. At one point, the director tried splicing random angles on a bicycle chase scene, one shot with the bike on a street in blue light, another shot with it in orange lights, another with the antagonist's chase vehicle, and another identical shot where the chase vehicle just disappeared. I have never seen such sloppy editing.

Besides the editing, someone on here said the cinematography was "great". Are you f**king crazy? Sure, if you like seeing random blips of Rome here and there, but overall nothing made sense. The first 30 seconds of the film has you regretting instantly - it looks like video camera footage, which is why I laughed my ass of in the credits when it said "shot on Kodak". b.s.

Regarding the plot, yes, it is lifeless and useless. You while feel as empty after this movie as you did when you put it in the DVD player. There is absolutely no lesson, moral, climax, or abstract resolution to this film. I know some of the greatest movie's of all time just kind of "end", but the director must've thought he was the next Queintin Tarintino...or Sergio Leone for that matter. Murder scenes abruptly cut to happy scenes with the little girl on her bike humming along to Frank Sinatra like music at least 20 times. And to top it off, the final scene drags the plot to all-time low of satisfaction and understanding...leaving this film unfinished would've been good enough.

All in all, however, a friend and I picked this out because it sounded horrible, but instead we got much more than just horrible - we experienced a whole new meaning of a B-movie ... so I need to invent a term for it..

Maybe a "fubar movie".

I hope to one day meet this director and preferably kill him with peanut butter just like in the movie.
