Crazy Credits

No animals were hurt during the production of this screenplay. Even when the tarantula escaped in the director's house for 8 hours. However, people were killed when we needed bodies for the "Dick on a pile of bodies" scene. The producers regret this, and in retrospect, feel they should have used "fake" bodies. Sorry. See more »

I Begged for it to End
16 August 2005 | by Exit_of_99c_SpecialSee all my reviews

I am a fan of terrible movies. I love horrible films. Somehow, I think this film was made to appeal my type of person. Did it? No. The main character plays a girl that is not sick or twisted, rather mentally retarded and useless.

As the movie description says, Jane White tries everything possible to be on the Gerry Show (Jerry Springer show except with Laverine & Shirley's Squiggy). She believes that Gerry is her father, so the film documents her journey from cheap set to cheap sound stage set. Some of the cast you might lose respect for after seeing this.

Sadly, other than the bright orange tights that Jane wears, there was nothing in this film to enjoy. For those who could careless about bright orange tights, then there is nothing for them to enjoy.
