I usually get sucked into watching movies that people claim are the "worst movie ever" . guess cause i have to see for myself. most the time people are right , but they got it mostly wrong with this one. Is it low budget? , yes. Is it silly ? , yes. But it isn't the worst movie ever. Chris kattan made this movie for me. It reminded me of his old snl days, just a lot of ad lib non nonsense stuff that he is good at. His scenes with his girl friend are hilarious and are my favorite parts of the movie . Without him though, I would have stopped this movie way short. The other notables in this film didn't add much and could have been utilized a lot better. It's worth a watch if you like Chris kattan and have some time to kill.
This story revolves around three brothers that have been "Tiger" Scouts
for 10 to 20 years. Their father, the camp leader, has decided he is
going to run away to join their mother. One of the inept brothers is
going to lead the "Tiger" Scout camp. That story in itself might have
made a funny premise for a comedy. Chris Kattan, normally very funny,
flops in this film.
I'm reminded of the TV show "Who's Line Is It, Anyway" This whole film looks like an improvisational piece. Some of the jokes work, but most fall flat on their face. It's as though they were given the premise of each scene 10 seconds before the camera rolls. Maybe if they had taken the time to do more than one take on each scene it would have worked better. I was able to sit through this whole film. I'm sure I'll never watch it again.
I rented this movie because we are scouts and so we thought it may be funny and it had our interest because of the scouting connection. We put in the DVD and watched for about 15 minutes and could not take it anymore. Chris Kattan can be weird and wacky...Fred Willard plays a lot of annoying or disgruntled characters...but this movie stinks big time! The acting was so awful, the plot uninteresting, the humor devoid of any amusement at all...I am not kidding, when I say this may be the worst movie I've ever seen! Do yourself a favor, if you have an inkling to rent this -- DON'T! Rent something else and spare yourself the misery!
Was it me or was everybody in this film trying to be Tim Conway? If so, they all failed, miserably. The ones who weren't trying to be Tim Conway, were trying to be Jim Carrey. I was challenged to watch the whole thing just to see if there was even one laugh. The fart jokes almost made it, because it's really hard to screw up a fart joke. They did. What is really amazing, apart from the fact that people were actually paid to be in this, is that these were adults, and they allowed themselves the embarrassment. I can't imagine having this on your resume. I had to stop watching and started just listening, because I was embarrassed. The guy who played the son with all the merit badges, I don't know or care who he was, was just obnoxious, no other way to put it. Not that the rest of the crew wasn't. there's no good reason for writing this other than to vent out of frustration. If you haven't seen it, proceed with extreme caution. You have been warned. It is beyond bad.
