Complete Waste of Time!
13 August 2010 | by MandlebaumSee all my reviews

I have never felt the need to write a review on IMDb until I saw this movie. It may be the "best movie never released", but it was never released for a reason. IT SUCKS! It wasn't funny in any sort of dark comedy, stoner comedy, British humor or stupid funny way. Aside from the three or four minutes of the mildly entertaining role played by William H. Macy the movie was a totally bore. I kept waiting for something funny to happen, hoping that some great moment at the end would make it all worth while... but no. This isn't even a movie to "half-watch" while you are working or tending to your laundry or dishes. Don't waste your time, money or someone else's money on this picture.
