Falls flat on it's face
10 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a complete and total failure at dark comedy. You have the main character who seems to be autistic and his bumbling cousin who's only excuses is he's genetically stupid. The dog gets killed and they go around town stacking bodies to the rafters. I wouldn't call it gore porn but murder porn. They kill people that don't deserve to die in an attempt at dark humor but fail miserably. If they had done a good job with the dialog and these unwarranted deaths, I would not be writing this negative review.

This movie is like walking into a room of stoned people roaring with laughter and everything they're laughing at isn't the least bit funny but for them all in that same zone of mind, it is. That's how the writing behind this movie feels on video. Like an inside joke that isn't funny but when you're stoned and built up to that level, it is. Unfortunately being stoned in real life while watching this won't help.

It's truly awful.

So who is Brian Petsos? Good question because a script this bad getting this much money and a handful of well known A and B actors leads us to the belief that he's someone's muse or just another rich kid that went into the business. All I saw was a lot of wasted resources on a lot of poorly written lines and scenes. I think what I learned from this movie is who a lot of the members of the Hollywood stoner crowd are because this guy must have got them all stoned out of their minds when he pitched this project to them.

I've read better stories on toilet paper after wiping my ass!
