Hilarious and Sick Good Fun
10 April 2004 | by (Somewhere in Time) – See all my reviews

Eli Roth is turning into one of the most bizarrely brilliant filmmakers of my generation. His first feature, "Cabin Fever," a wonderfully gory and hilarious film that almost everyone seems to hate, is a masterpiece in my opinion. However, here, with The Rotten Fruit, he uses more humor than horror to pull the viewer in. The background of The Rotten Fruit is as follows: They're the Rotten Fruit, the most popular band in the world, and we get to see the behind-the-scenes antics of the band, whether it be them trying to win a Battle of the Bands contest by offing the competition, trying to take down the evil Snackster free music provider, or just plain old screwing with the staff at a swanky London hotel. Of the three shorts given to us on the Cabin Fever disc, by far the best is the episode entitled "Battle of the Bands". The reasons behind this are the use of clever in-jokes, hilarious usage of British slang, making fun of your typical boy band (which is always hilarious) and, if you enjoyed Cabin Fever, the gory and sick way they take care of their competition. All in all, if you're out for a good laugh, and only want to watch something for maybe 15 minutes, watch The Rotten Fruit. You won't regret it.
