Budget $203,000 ?!
6 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, take a zero off that estimated budget. That gives us a realistic figure. Secondly, take another zero off to convey how dreadful this movie is!

First, the editing. The editing is very jagged and no exaggeration, looks like the student films I see produced by 7th and 8th graders. Yes, pre-high school level cinematography and editing. The footage also looks like the modern day soft core films that somehow still manage to find both investors and an audience. If this weren't true, they wouldn't still be getting made.

Second, the acting. Some of the actors are actually good. Most of them are actually bad. All of them are unlikely to ever get a respectable job after this.

Third, the writing. Well, it's written by the same guy that wrote such hits as Fitness and Fun. A show where celebrities stop by to workout I guess only...none of the cast listed are actually celebrities and for the life of me, I can not find any copies of it. All too shockingly, this master of the pen also directed this amazing piece of cinematography.

All in all, it's still bad enough that you just can not stop watching! The pace is good and there's a bunch of stories smeared into one. Everything is so completely random and casual it inspires you to believe that YES! You too could make a mediocre film that nobody but your friends, family and local small town residents will ever see.

Every so often, I see movies with this horrific quality of production that are actually very good. This simply isn't one of them but it's actually worth watching! It's just so ridiculously bad that it's fun.
