Surprisingly Poorly-Executed, But Funny Film
14 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I heartily agree with previous reviewers on a few points:

  • the film plays on ridiculous stereotypes - the acting, while


certainly amateur at best, is hindered by a comically clichéd script - the filter effect is distracting and pointless. Perhaps it was meant to give the impression of fish-vision, but my wife and I both hoped from the first moment that the effect would go away after the opening credits.

I gave the movie two stars instead of one simply because of the comedy factor. Lines like "Now you do the cock!" are reminiscent of the unintentional humor of Wiseau's "The Room." Awkward cut-aways to a goldfish slowly opening and closing its mouth have a similarly hilarious effect.

I should be a bit less harsh, on the assumption that this may have been a student's film project. I hope it was.

I might have been more forgiving were it not for that aggravating filter.

You might enjoy this movie at a party or for sheer comedic value.
