The Most Absurd Film In The World (Eraserhead Aside)
7 October 2005 | by kevinahoffmanSee all my reviews

I don't know where to begin. This film is RIDICULOUS. I give it a 10/10 for the reason that I have never seen a more ridiculous movie. Shapeshifter would be great to incorporate into a beer drinking game with friends. Most people would turn this off within the first 2 minutes, but when you're someone like me who spends the entire daylight of Saturday recovering from the prior evening's drunken rampage, and something that seems thoroughly wasteful presents itself to you, you take hold of it for all it's worth (long sentence, huh?). This movie was truly hilarious (although it doesn't intend to be at all). I have the feeling that it was based on a dream some 9-year-old had after a night of eating peanut butter and cheese whiz. Then, the 9-year-old told the dream to his dad (who is a film producer) and, since the film producer had nothing better to do, gives into the kid and does it (which is the final blow necessary in thoroughly destroying his career). I would LOVE to own this movie on DVD with extensive commentary (and deleted footage) so that someone involved in this undertaking can explain to me what they were thinking.

If you are an impatient person with a busy life, then you will definitely NOT want to spend any money or time on this film. However, if you're a goofy bum like me, this movie will make your day. ENJOY!.
