So bad it's funny
5 June 2003 | by kirk-44See all my reviews

This is the worst movie ever. The star's mother is a producer I think and it looks like his summer job was to make this film when he was about 21. As bad as they get. It is so funny it has great dialogue like "Thanks for the beer!" Trust me it is a must see you'll laugh at every aspect of it.
