way too long of a commercial spot
17 April 2006 | by strange_intentionSee all my reviews

Raftaci is a weak sequence of the well known Czech teenage comedy Snowbordaci. While Snowbordaci were original and unique in some ways, Raftaci failed to bring new ideas and were limited to burden the audience with tons of in-movie advertising. This was probably the biggest let down of all. Certainly it is inevitable to use some brands in the movie, but this should only be used to support the story. It's fair to say that Raftaci made me laugh several times during the show, but the story itself was really cheap and the overall impression very condemning. The whole plot of the movie is based on one of the main character's inability to get laid due to different disasters which bring juice to the movie. As long as the movie sticks to this (not so original) plot it remains entertaining. However as I wrote earlier it is crowded with disturbing and meaningless presence of advertising. Final verdict: don't watch this movie unless you are a huge fan of "hidden" advertising in movies and are willing to pay for it..
