Quotes

[first lines]
Rock Slyde: My name is Rock Slyde, and I blame my mother. With a name like that I was destined for one of two careers. That's detective work, or porn. After starring in two art films, I decided the glamor life of a porn star wasn't for me. Besides, I was hung like a hamster.

Absolutely fantastic!
25 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw this recently, and absolutely loved it! Cannot believe this is the directors first effort, shows the marks of an established and confident director...great script, great actors, hilarious set pieces - a movie to watch over again and again in order to pick up all the little throw away gags. Andy Dick was fantastic, and as has been mentioned in other reviews, Patrick Warburton plays the title character as a perfect straight comedy character.

Mixing two great story strands works well and keeps you interested all the way through, along with the great sight gags. Will have to look out for more from Mr Dowling in the future!
