CHAWesomely Ridiculous
22 September 2013 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I've never been more entertained randomly walking into a room before. I have to thank my friend's wife for randomly having it on and hooking me because of the insane amount of drunken people and shenanigans within the first 20 minutes of the movie. I mean this is by no means a well scripted or shot movie and I truly believe it just went for zany and succeeded completely.

Between the utter lack of a scene or even time transition (except once after the grand daughter scene)this movie was shoddy, sporadic and confusing at times. Like I must have blinked when it was established that the main character had a pregnant wife cause she wasn't in the truck when they tried to ditch the mother. Many questions are left unanswered but the one major thing to take away from the movie, is if you ever see the camera pan out for a more horizontal shot while you're walking along...prepare to get sideswiped by something.

I could continue with how the film work like randomly changes when they have scenes that look like crime drama shooting or the artsy film noir kind of shot, but that's taking away from the true beauty. My point of course being that regardless of budget, insanity or bad film work...this movie delivers. Don't go into this expecting a horror movie with a man- eating boar, go into just expecting to be entertained.

This film gets a 10/10 from me because it's entertaining beyond words and we need more films like this. If you can find beauty in the "so bad that it's actually genius genre", then this is for you.
