Storyline

An absurd comedy about a Parking Enforcement Officer, who - despite constant abuse from the public - finds truth, honour and serenity in the act of ticketing. His religious devotion to the work is challenged however, when his best friend and personal mentor is run down by an irate motorist and knocked into a deep coma. With the help of an angry young filmmaker, a Russian sound recordist hoping to break into the local film industry, and a seven-foot tall tow truck driver from Quebec, he embarks on a comical investigation into... the delicate art of parking.

Worst Movie Of All Time!
17 January 2005 | by halifax55See all my reviews

This movie was absolutely atrocious and I'm sad to admit that it was filmed in my home city of Vancouver.

The screenplay was juvenile, predictable and the jokes were, I suppose, hidden somewhere in the profanity laden rants of people taking their frustrations out on pathetic parking cops. The reality is that it's just too far-fetched an idea to think there could be so much drama in the lives of parking attendants and so the authors of the screenplay really stretched to try and build a house out of sand. What they ended up with was a dry, boring script which was acted by a bunch of third string hacks. I kept thinking that something would happen and it would get better but alas it never came and I left feeling upset that I'd just lost 2 hours of my life.

Please don't rent or go see this film anywhere at any time. It'll just encourage the people responsible for this piece of trash to make more crappy films.
