one of the worst movies ever
4 June 2006 | by bountyhunter31See all my reviews

This movie is definitely one of the worst, if not the worst movie I have ever seen. I rented this movie and watched it with a few friends thinking that it would have some good laughs. As we have all seen the movies that it was poking fun at, I assumed we would get most if not all of the jokes. As we watched the movie, we quickly realized there were no jokes to get, because the dialogue was absolutely retarded. They spent so much time making fun of how independent movies are made, and how they follow the same style, and typical dialogue and weird ideas/characters. The worst parts of the movie were of the 2 guys making fun of pulp fiction, some of the gayest and worst lines in a movie. While I am positive this was the directors and screenwriters intent, I am also positive they expected these lines to deliver huge laughs. Another scene that was retarded was the john travolta rip-off taking a crap on the toilet. I'll bet they were dying filming that scene, and it comes off horribly. Avoid this movie no matter what, rent Donnie Darko, Matchpoint, or Punch-Drunk Love instead.
