Awful
19 November 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

While not as bad as "An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn" this is still one of the worst movies I've ever seen and the worst movie I've seen for Direct To Video Month. Even the title is too generic. It's meant to be a parody of TV, but it just comes off as a lengthy montage of rejected sketches from anything. This movie is just plain rude and offensive. I guess I shouldn't have expected anything too good from Steve-O, the star of Jackass. The acting in all of this is horrible. There are some animated parts which are stupid and pointless.

They do a parody of Michael Moore. Literally all they do is make fun of how fat he is. What satire. There's way too many topless women in this movie. It's vulgar and stupid. They try to do a parody of "Girls Gone Wild" but it just looks the same as an actual "Girls Gone Wild" video. There's tons of gratuitous swearing and it's all offensive and mean spirited. There's one scene where a guy on a prank show sticks his head in a dirty toilet. Everyone is just so obnoxious and stupid here.

Danny Trejo appears and I realize that he's one of the most prolific actors in history. I guess it only fits he'd be in a movie as terrible as this. It should have been called Direct To Video: The Movie as it would have made as much sense. It's just random stupid thing after random stupid thing making the whole thing horribly incoherent with not a single laugh among them. There's offensive gay jokes and rape jokes. Oh, and also fat jokes and midget jokes. There is absolutely nothing witty or insightful in any of this and this film is pure and utter trash. National Lampoon, when did you go wrong? 1/2 star
