How to Make a Bad Movie
22 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alex is on his way to Harvard but needs a summer internship to qualify for a scholarship. When a job in D.C. falls through, he turns to his glib cousin, Roger, whom he thinks is an aquatic engineer.

Roger is, in truth, a Beverly Hills pool boy who offers Alex a job and promises to invent an internship to fool Harvard.

When a pool customer with a mansion goes on holiday for six weeks, Roger gets the idea to run a brothel and enlists Alex to keep the books. As the scholarship interview approaches, what could go wrong?

Been done before and I supposed the $15 budget was spent on Meth because it doesn't show in the film quality. Maybe it went to Tarzan. The film is really dumb. The part that is especially annoying is it takes this "insider" approach where the actors give a nod and a wink to the audience that they are in a movie. It doesn't work. It brings the film down to a Troma level and that's a micro budget.

15 minutes into this movie I actually thought close to 90 minutes elapsed! That's how bad it is.

My recommendation is don't bother
