4 September 2007 | by ichocolatSee all my reviews

If I can describe this movie in just three words, I'd say: "This movie stinks!"

The jokes were not funny, it was blatantly stupid and deeply embarrassing. I waited for about half an hour, hoping that the movie will eventually become better, but it didn't happen. Instead, the movie became worse halfway through the show.

There are many movies making spoofs about movies and commercial, but they did it much better. For example, the Scary Movie. Both Scary Movie and National Lampoon : TV are the same in the sense that both made fun of the movies, but while Scary Movie made me laugh out loud, National Lampoon : TV made me crinch in embarrassment and made me look so stupid.

I can't remember any good moments in the movie except the part about El Apprentise ( a spoof about the Donald Trump's The Apprentice), when the candidates went to the boardroom to face the Columbian drug-lord. Other than the brief moment, everything about this movie in forgettable.

Heed my advise. Find / rent another movie instead.
