Amateur Hour
4 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolute debauchery with a totally dated perspective. One of the biggest scandals that dictated part of the zeitgeist of the early 2000's and the director saw it through an amateur 1990's lens. Corny, overdone and trying way too hard - a 16 year old with an iphone could've made a better film. Jeff Prosserman's choices in everything from the cliché camera angles, over-dramatized music composition, corny stock footage (obviously used to fill in missing holes) are clear indicators that yet again, we have another overgrown kid playing with daddy's money. I can only imagine the grueling process the EP's & crew had to bear to get this thing made. It's amazing how these movies get made without anybody saying, "Wait, really? We're putting this out there??" and how much money goes down the drain while doing so. Mainly though, I wish Prosserman could give me my wasted 90 minutes back.
