Mrs. Munchnik: [Door bell rings,hysterically yelling at the door] Are you the Seaside Strangler? Well listen here Mr. Seaside Strangler. I *am* calling the police. I am getting the reward and you will go to a maximum security prison where a very large, hairy man is going to make you his girlfriend.

Deplorably Awful!
25 November 2006 | by elbrooko39See all my reviews

Worst movie I have ever seen.

So bad I just stared at the screen jaw-hanging open that it could be so disorganized, unfunny, overbearing, hack-acted, and pointless.

I only kept watching because I believed at every 15 minute mark that it couldn't possibly get any worse.

And yet it did every single time.

I'm stunned the people behind this colossal crap-fest were allowed to ever work in the business again.

Yes, it truly is that bad.

If you enjoyed this movie, you combine horrible taste with an extremely low IQ.
