This is the worst movie ever made
21 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really don't know what to say about this movie. There are no words to describe how horrible, brain-cell destroying, intelligence insulting, and lacking in any thought this movie was. Every time I've seen a movie I thought was the worst I've ever seen, I questioned how any movie could possibly beat that one. I asked myself that question when I watched "Jack and Jill". I asked myself that when I watched "The Garbage Pail Kids Movie". I asked myself that when I watched "21 Jump Street". Now, I ask it again, only this time I am nearly positive I will never see anything worse than this. Every bad idea, every ounce of non-creativity, mixed with the worst director and screenwriter in the world is the only way a movie worse than this could be made.

In the 70s and 80s, National Lampoon released some comedy films that are considered some of the best and funniest movie ever made with general critic and audience appraise, including "Animal House", "National Lampoon's Vacation", and "Christmas Vacation". At the turn of the 21st century, National Lampoon released more movies, all that have received poor acclaim from critics and audiences. This movie, by itself, is evidence that National Lampoon has lost its talent and has failed.

"TV: The Movie" is a compilation of comedy sketches that are not funny, are just annoying or obnoxious, are are simply made up of the lowest form of comedy. The film has a number of sketches that attempt to spoof TV shows like "Fear Factor", "Miami Vice", and "Jackass", though instead of spoofing the material, they just put the actors in a similar situation and just have them scream obnoxiously and run around the set doing something stupid.

The movie that this most reminded me of was "Movie 43", and while I despised that film, it was done a lot better. While the jokes were juvenile and even disgusting at times, the actors were put into a situation, but they were actually supposed to do something other than run around the set with no clue of what to do and just shout obnoxiously until the camera turned off.

It's at times like this I wish the device from the "Men in Black" trilogy actually existed so I could wipe my memory of ever seeing this movie and knowing I wasted an hour and a half of my life watching this movie that took about two seconds to think up and even shorter an amount of time to film and edit. There are movies out there that I don't see how other people could like them and this is one of them, though this film does make me think my judgment of those other films I feel the same way about are a little harsh.
