Yes, I give this "film" a 10. The pure joy I've had so far (I've watched about 3 minutes here and there) that anyone who trashes this film does NOT have any sense of humor, knowledge of narrative theory, nor any taste.

Snarky reviews that "trash" this beautiful piece of work should be thrown into the toilet.

I'm watching this film as I write this. And it's pure joy. The horrible acting, the bad editing, the hilarious use of the turkey... it's incredible. Yeah, it's bad as hell. But, that's the point. If you don't get that? Then, that's your problem.

Sooooo. Sit back, relax. Watch it (actually, scan through it like we're doing), and just laugh your ass off.

That's what it's for.

*(and yeah, I myself am a film maker) Peace be with you.
