Funniest Movie EVER!
5 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie was definitely the funniest movie I have ever seen. I laughed until I cried.

Now, this movie wasn't meant to be funny, but the special effects were so awful, and the acting so atrocious, you can't help but think this movie is hilarious.

Not to mention how cliché this movie becomes. You can see everything coming. There were some great one-liners as well, such as "Is your beer getting warm?" Pure genius.

The premise of the movie is extremely funny as well, and if you're looking for a good laugh at a bad movie, this is the ultimate movie for it.

10/10.
