Surprisingly Good Satire!
5 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first came upon this film, I didn't expect much from it. However, based on the DVD cover, it looked like it would be a fun movie as the cover is obviously a reference to the 1950 film, Harvey. Therefore, I thought there might be something to it. I was right.

I agree with the previous reviewer, if you don't like low-budget, B-Movies, then this isn't for you. BUT, if you like low-budget, campy stuff, then this is right up your alley. What is cool about this film is that it fools you. From the start, it seems like you're watching a serious crime drama, then it takes a wild turn into what can only be described as campy, satirical fun. The acting is way-over the top, some of it is downright bad, which lends itself to the John Wateresque style of film-making.

The film covers a wide range of genres including everything from sci-fi, horror, spaghetti western, crime, and film-noir. The best way to describe this film is that it's FUN. It's not Oscar worthy or even Sundance worthy, but regardless of the obviously low-budget, the film has high production values and is fairly well-made.

If you don't take yourself or your movies too seriously, give this a shot.
