Your mom's an army
30 July 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is roughly the humor you can expect in this 20-minute film from 6 years ago. Basically, it is just all taken out of "Dragonball Z" and the only thing the filmmakers did is cut it together the way they wanted it to look and voice the characters with the dialogs they wrote for them. Another example apart from the joke in the title of this review is a reference to Kanye West' infamous interruption of Taylor Swift. So yeah, it's funny and goofy at times what they turned this into, but as a whole it's just not very memorable at all and more like an overlong prank, certainly not justified to make this a 20-minute film. I cannot really recommend it. Then again I am not much of a "Dragonball Z" fan.
