I got suckered
28 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I deserve to have the word "sucker" tattooed on my forehead. I'd just finished watching season 2 of Flight of the Conchords and was in need of more. Stumbled across an advert for this film and immediately ordered it.

Jemaine appears in precisely one scene (about 2 minutes) Murray appears in 2 scenes (about 3 minutes in total) Bret appears in 5 or 6 scenes as a peripheral inconsequential character.

Truly awful pedestrian plot not worthy of a TV movie. I can only assume that the three starts of FotC got suckered into making this movie themselves.

Really, don't bother with this. I gave it 3 stars and I think in retrospect I was being very kind. At that point I still had 20 minutes to go.
