Rent Control (2003)
Hilariously awful- for the love of God, don't show to your children.
My friends and I were hanging out and came upon this movie completely by accident. We watched it for a good twenty minutes, our mouths hanging open.
What can't be emphasized enough- what I'm still reeling from- is how this managed to be screened on the ABC Family channel. If I were a parent, I'd be appalled, likely, making phone calls about it. How a movie featuring an endless parade of weirdos- including a sadomasochist (!!)and a necrophiliac (!!!!)- and centering on a couple's attempts to rid themselves of an old lady's body, could ever be construed as "family" entertainment is mind-boggling. "Rent Control" is only a family movie insomuch as it features Melissa Joan Hart- having not developed one jot as an actor since her kid-stardom- and is wretched in that particular way that afflicts most children's films: simplistic, poorly shot, with terrible jokes and lines of duologue- really, whole scenes- that make no sense. Basically, it's a film about perverts geared toward five-year-olds. I'm the last one to talk about Hollywood corruption of the youth, but, holy sh**.
