Release the Plumpen !!...........................
22 October 2012 | by (Salahudeen) – See all my reviews

Terrible does not even begin to describe this piece of trash. No plot, terrible acting, what were they thinking? This has to be one of the stupidest pieces of crap I have ever seen. Do not waste any of your precious minutes watching this drivel. The positive reviews are from those involved with the movie like many of the reviews on this site. This has to be one of the stupidest pieces of crap I have ever seen. The only thing worth watching are the few seconds you get to see some boob cleft. This is sort of like a pg-13 version of a TV after school special .\

Pure garbage with no entertainment value.
