Storyline

Auggie and Drew are a couple of guys who have been at the college they are at longer than most students because they spend most of their time throwing parties and charging people to come and other schemes. But when the Dean grows tired of their escapades he graduates them. They go to see Drew's cousin, Samantha who runs her family's gas station and she tells them that the owner of a fast food chain wants to buy the station. Drew reminds her that her father had hopes and dreams built around the station. When she sees how obnoxious the owner is, she decides not to sell. Auggie thinks they should open their own restaurant. He goes to the bank and gets a loan but only by putting the station up as collateral. They open but things are slow. But when a sorority at the college hires them, Auggie decides to put a formula one of their college mates develop which is an aphrodisiac. And pretty soon business is booming. And the owner who in addition to not taking the rejection well, wants to know ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Just a smidge above awful
17 March 2012 | by liamforemanSee all my reviews

Well, this was hard to get through. I remembered Clark Brandon from the 80s (playing Jo's boyfriend on Facts of Life and Bobby's friend in 'My Tutor') and when I saw that he also wrote the screenplay I was intrigued. For about ten minutes. I was sitting there with a friend and basically talked out the dialogue it was so obvious.

The whole premise of the film is that a struggling burger joint start-up comes up with a way to increase business, by spiking their special sauce with an aphrodisiac. Then the FDA comes in and they get in trouble. This could have been interesting, seeing it today in 2012 because it is known that fast food companies put addictive chemicals in their food and there could have been a deeper or more political moral of the story.

But nope, this film was all over the map, obvious, sometimes embarrassingly stupid (I was never a fan of Jim Varney and he wasn't HORRID in this, but still not funny to me in any way).

I wouldn't recommend this, but I did get through it. There are some films that I can't even get through, and this was close.
