A hit and miss affair.
8 February 2007 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Let me start out by saying this was much better than I expected. I thought that this would be absolutely terrible, and where it wasn't very good, I was entertained through most of it and a few things actually did make me laugh. My main reason for watching this is my love for the channel surfing films "Amazon Women on the Moon" and "Kentucky Fried Movie". While this was nowhere near as good, it still reminded me of those two films. The basic plot of this one....well there is no plot. It's a bunch of random TV show, commercial and movie parodies made to give you the rush of channel surfing. The major problem is that the movie has way to many sketches featuring "Jackass" stars playing themselves and pretending like they're big celebrities. There are way to many segments featuring (especially) Steve-O as himself. Many of the segments are just too silly, and too many are spoofing reality shows. The budget for the animated segments was obviously nothing so it was hard for this film to seem like a truly authentic channel surf. With that said, I was entertained through most of this. The camera work and direction was good, even though it was pretty much the same no matter what the parody. I laughed at least a few times and overall it's an OK way to kill 86 minutes. But if you want better films, go by my suggestions are rent or buy the two mentioned earlier in my review.

*My favorite segments were Gay Clowns part 1, and Fear Factor: Gang Rape.

My rating: ** out of *****. 86 mins. Rated R for pervasive strong language, nudity, sexuality and drug use.
