Cute shoestring-budget flick with some of the funniest scenes I've ever watched
rooprect from New York City
9 March 2013
"The Amazing Spider-Man" had a budget of $230,000,000. "Bunny Whipped"
was made for $900k. Although at times noticeable, don't let its low
budget turn you off. This is a nice flick with a few priceless moments,
a few lame ones, but overall a fun ride. It's one of those films where
the plot isn't particularly clever or engaging, but the individual
moments of comedy are.
If you're wondering, the plot is about a loser who uses his amazing
powers of absolutely-nothing to thwart crime. It gets interesting when
he gets embroiled in a rap star murder mystery (the murder itself is
probably the funniest death since Ricardo Montalban got run over by a
marching band in "Naked Gun"). And at the same time he's trying to get
a grip on his miserable love life, in spite of the "help" from his
Although the plot is a little saggy, there are at least half a dozen
scenes that are guaranteed to give you a hearty lol. First there are
the riotously bad rap songs like "Riches and Bitches" and "Tap that
A$$" with awesome lyrics like "I got more hoes than toes!" complete
with mocked up, over-the-top music videos. Then there's the comedic
banter between the rapper "Godfather" and his wiseguy henchman who
keeps trying to finish the rapper's sentences, much to the rappers
furious dismay (like "If you don't do what I say, she'll be sleeping
with the..." "...fish?" "No...guppies! Sleeping with the guppies!").
There's also the self-help expert who is about as insightful as a bad
fortune cookie (be sure to stick around after the credits roll to see
his horrible PSA on sexually transmitted diseases), the flakey
newswoman who's more interested in getting some than actual news
reporting. There's a bizarro girl who constantly wears a pageant ribbon
proclaiming her to be "Miss Most Awesomely Awesome Woman" and a bunch
of other oddball characters it would take me too long to describe.
So you see where I'm going with this? "Bunny Whipped" is funny &
entertaining NOT for its plot but for the weird moments that have
nothing to do with the plot.
Like I said, if you can overlook the low budget production vibe, if you
can overlook the 2-dimensional plot, if you can overlook the fact that
it has practically nothing to do with saving bunnies, as the title and
DVD box say, then sit down and have a watch.
Another comedy about a questionable superhero is the excellent film
"Special" (2006). That one is a must see.
