Storyline

Surfer and inventor Edison (Scott "Carrot Top" Thompson) is chosen by his roommates to raise rent with his outrageous (and absurd) inventions.

Edison has a lot of success with his inventions while the company's competitors do all they can to destroy him.

Laughing at it instead of with it
6 December 2003 | by oddjob589See all my reviews

This movie is stupid. There's no getting around it. But so is Dumb and Dumber. Mind you, Dumb and Dumber is significantly more funny than this. However, I for one love seeing stupid movies (Tail Sting) and laughing with a group of good friends over how bad it is. Call me callous, but see this movie, and you'll find that the only way you can laugh at it is if you laugh at it instead of with it.
