Glenn D. Bridges,
possibly the best thing Eli Roth has done yet, I'm serious
Yeah, the Rotten Fruit, where to begin? They're a band, and they're rotting fruit, oh, and they're like the California raisins, only they do rock and roll and they curse a lot and get into angsty moods and feuds. And don't even TRY and use a 'snackster' to get the music out there, it just won't work. These are just very cheesy short films made by horror director Eli Roth and Noah Belson, but they work for their intents and purposes, which are that of the same caliber of an underground comic-book. I laughed really hard a few times, even just at the mention of some of the characters' names (Banandar, Constable, etc). A lot of them are chuckle-type laughs, but they're all still good, stupid jokes spinning off of rock bands (and boy bands) and all tossed around and given some fervor by these foul-mouthed, uh, produce; maybe think of them as the South Park kids only if they were a rock band, and fruit. But like South Park, it pulls off its crude quality with its sense of humor. It's violent, rude, off-kilter, and definitely displays Roth at his comic best (there are inklings of his comic talents in Hostel). My favorite of the three would go to Room Service, where the band tears up their hotel room, repeatedly bothering the staff, but then end up cleaning the entire place when off-handedly 'challenged' by the manager! I'd definitely watch these again, they're the filthiest, cruelest bunch of Gumbys, and it's jolly good fun. A-
