A newly discovered genre: a comedy without laughs
11 October 2001 | by edwardkeatonSee all my reviews

I own, and actually enjoy, all of Steven Seagal's movies... I think I'm the only person who liked Batman and Robin... Keanu Reeves' acting really puts a smile on my face...

As I'm sure you've guessed, I am a lover of bad movies and when I saw this in a bargain bid outside a newsagents in Islington, I thought, for 99p, I can't go wrong. But boy oh boy, wrong I was!

This movie is awful in every department, from its lame script, to its amateur acting, to its stilted direction. There was not one camera movement in the whole film, not a single pan or tracking shot; all of it was shot with a static camera, making for a very static film. The plot, forced as I am in a critical comment to mention it, was non-existent, some guff about a woman on the run which didn't so much end as just finish. And not one funny line in the whole movie. It must take some work to write a comedy and not include a single gag, but this movie managed it.

I've sat through Rancid Aluminium, House!, Circus and a slew of the worst that Britain has to offer, but this one tops the lot. And the thing that bothered me most about this film? That for another 50p I could have had Death Wish 4; I'm sure the extra investment would have been worthwhile.
