Awful Film
20 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is honestly one of the worst films I have ever seen. It made me laugh for all the wrong reasons: stilted dialogue; awful camera-work; and terrible acting. It makes sense that the lead actor is one of the writers... he wouldn't have been cast otherwise. Naturally, like most people, I bought this because Bret, Jemaine, and Rhys from Flight of the Conchords are in it. The fact that Jemaine and Rhys are hardly seen didn't bother me at all, the film could've still been really good without them. But it was horrendous from start to finish.

I bought this for £6 in a sale, whereas really it should have been in a bargain bin somewhere for 50p.

I'll never watch it again!
