"The funniest ninja movie since... ever?"
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Personally, I thought this film was brilliant. Now granted, I live in Dallas (where it was filmed), and I have a tendency to love bad films to begin with, but...

The movie is done in a mockumentary style, interviewing George McGoogle about his life in E-Hollywood Story type fashion. We follow him as he recaps (and enacts) his adventures, trials, tribulations, and film career. As the DVD cover tells us "There's a lot of kicking in this movie!" It also features hit music by Wally Pleasant, who I have never heard of outside of the context of this film.

Two recommendations when you do decide to watch the film: -don't cut it off before the credits are over, it's worth it to wait -watch it with the commentary, it's tortuously entertaining
