Storyline

A long night's journey into day. On the eve of her 18th birthday, talkative and rotund Cara is invited to accompany a pizza delivery guy, Matt, on his rounds. It's a night of firsts for her - first job, first beer, first cigarette, first dance. How will she handle it? And, what about Matt - good-looking, single, unattached, and 30? Why would he want to include Cara? She's intrusive and vulnerable; he's under-employed and protective. Is there life after pizza? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Is there a score below 1 out of 10 please ?
22 December 2011 | by DeuxiemeEscadronSee all my reviews

I must say, I really mean it, I must! say! it is one of the worst and most pathetic pieces of movie that I ever saw. I tried, God knows I tried to appreciate it! Just so you know, I survived things such as Force-T, The Russian Specialist, Arena and Solo Voyage so it's not bad will. My original goal was to spend a good evening watching this movie. But further and further the minutes advanced, more and more the scenes followed each other, I knew that it was establishing new standards in boringness. I watched it until the end alright, which makes it one hundredth of a star above the movie Le Golem de Montreal: one of the rare films I've ever stopped watching (I should say suffering) because it was awfully unbearable.

Such bad movies as the ones I previously named (exept Le Golem) have one advantage : being bad in a way that makes them funny. Pizza is just bad in a way that makes it pathetic. Makes one wonder how could time, energy, talent and material be wasted to create such a thing. Above all, makes one wonder how to give less than 1 out of 10 to a movie that doesn't even deserve this lowest score.

I won't waste any time talking about things like the acting, the screenplay or directing. I'll just say they're awful, very awful, overall.

If you're looking for a teenage story in the likes of Napoleon Dynamite, forget Pizza. I would rather suggest Harold, which is far from being a masterpiece but still enjoyable and way better than this one.
