Quotes

[first lines]
Gus: The surface of the Earth is 30% land and 70% water. A new born baby is composed of 70% water and 30% everything else. I guess this means that life and water are inseparable. A human child at birth under goes a ritual almost identical to that inflicted upon the trout at death. The fish is whacked on the head, thus putting it out of its misery. The infant is whacked on the behind, thus initiating the end to its misery.

Wow, What a POS
15 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie really couldn't get any worse than say, a pile of sh*t. I really wanted to like it. Hell, I could even looked past most of the piles of sh*t just for the scenery alone. But my crumbled Christ why couldn't anyone on the staff of this film stepped in and read the script and said, "Wait a minute, this is one big piece of sh*t!" An easy re-write could have been performed. I personally know 3 monkeys and one certified mentally disabled donkey that have credentials through the screenwriter's guild that could have improved upon this sewage treatment plant of hokum and heavy handed detritus.

I don't even know the point of this movie. Maybe to waste another venture capitalist's money? In which case, bravo!
