This movie is so bad it's surreal
19 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you think about the distribution of movies on a bell curve, then the all-time greats are just as rare as the worst movies of all time! In this respect, it is better to be a HORRIBLE movie than it is to be a mediocre one.

But seriously, this is actually a great C-film to enjoy and to hate while sitting around and drinking beers with a bunch of friends.

In addition, the film seems remarkably surreal at points. The behavior of the characters, especially while "pursuaded" by the mailman make very little sense. It's the visual enactment of a "non sequitur." Throw in random breasts every ten minutes and you have the makings of a very strange movie.
