Storyline

Featuring Ashens insane fictional search for a piece of electronic tat for the fabled Game Child, accompanied by fan favourite Chef Excellence (a human version, not the bloody puppet), and together they try to overcome the odds - and all common sense - to lay our hands on the fabled Game Child, an old handheld video game. But a shadowy figure, aided by my irritating nemesis, wants the game for their own dastardly ends. Written by Anonymous

Crazy Credits

Key Grip: Sorry. Actually we couldn't afford a Key Grip for the film so the rest of the crew had to carry all the grip equipment themselves. So anyway, we Wikipeded "Easter Egg", and the term was coined way back by someone at Atari because a game designer hid a secret message in a game. So it's like hunting for a hidden Easter egg. Huh.

Guess I don't get it
27 September 2014 | by (A Place Under the Sun) – See all my reviews

It takes a lot to deserve one star from me. I even gave "Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot" 3 stars. I had to turn it off TWICE. I stopped to check (recheck) on the rating and reviews here at IMDb and saw some support from the Indie lovers. I love Indie - good Indie. This is not it. As another reviewer pointed out, this is 80 minutes of crap you can see on Youtube and that's what I would rather do than sit through another minute of ridiculous, unfunny drivel such as this.

As I said, I stopped twice. The second time was exactly one scene after the first stop. I was desperately searching for something, ANYTHING funny in the slightest. Nada, zilch, zip.

Over, moving on. I've lost 15 minutes of my life: 10 on the vid and 5 on this review, nay warning.
