One stinky Pad Thai fish noodle of a film coming up!
7 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow, I'm sure glad I read the reviews of this film before I bothered watching any more than I did. BTW, I think anyone who gave this more than 3 stars must have had a relative involved in it. I just wasn't sure where it was going at 1st bite, so I started watching even through what looked like a film students 1st bite attempt at a movie. I thought it was going to be a comedy at 1st bite, but then it just wandered off into a miserable, boring failure. It's too bad whoever was responsible didn't have the insight to see that it was going to end up as a disaster and then just turn it into a rip roaring campy comedy because damn, I'm sure with just a few twists this could have been a real rib-breaker and I truly mean that. The acting was bad but then the script and directing was terrible so it's hard to blame the actors. Leah Pinsent proves talent doesn't always run in a family but then again I was never a big fan of her fathers acting but I digress. Bottom line, don't waste your time. Truly, I mean it. It just reached the point in the film where an ugly Thai woman is about to give the main character his 1st bite cooking lesson. Thank god it just went to an ad; I will take that as a cue to not waste another minute watching this dead fish of a film. Wow, it said the budget was a million bucks. Just think how many starving people that could have fed.
