Like watching an episode of the "Phantome Power Hour"
this movie is a lot like an episode of the Phantome Power Hour....makes NO sense, yet....it's highly entertaining. If you've seen "The Guy what Stayed Around Too Long" or "Sucks to be a Vet", you're prepared. "I Shoot Myself" is another fine piece by this filmmaker.
