Goofs

The film takes place in New England at Thanksgiving time. The characters are walking around in shorts and short sleeved shirts. If the filmmakers had spent any time in New England in November, they would know that it's way too cold to walk around in shorts and short-sleeved shirts. See more »

Gobble Gobble...
30 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie isn't a movie that anyone should take seriously, even for a second. If you try to take this movie seriously you'll immediately get on IMDb, give it a 1 star rating (provided that's being considerate) and write about how much of a waste of time it was, yada yada yada. These guys aren't professionals.

Yes, the acting sucks. The special effects suck. The plot sucks! It all freaking sucks. But seriously, just look at the cover, they made it blatantly obvious at the first glance. What ever your first impression is of what you're getting into, is probably right on.

If you're looking to kill some time. Sure, watch this movie. But like I said don't expect a grammy winning award for the acting or anything else really. It feels like a bunch of friends got together and made a funny story about thanksgiving and this was the result.
