Trivia

The opening swamp scene of the movie was originally intended to take place in a marsh in the south of Germany. When the location fell through it was decided that it would be more in keeping with the film's often self-deprecatory style of humor to change the setting of the scene to a kiddie pool in someone's backyard.

A great DVD release, with a fun movie and a ton of extras.
13 September 2006 | by somberfox-1See all my reviews

Lovecracked stands on its own as a fun and entertaining experience, hosting a collection of short stories tied together with an oft humorous narration, but what makes the DVD stand out even more is the addition of so much enjoyable extra content.

My fiancé and I enjoyed the extra content almost as much as we enjoyed the main future. This DVD stands as a great indication of what can be done by creative and intelligent people even when they don't have an insane budget to burn though.

If you're looking for a fun time and a great party movie, then I full heartily recommend the Lovecracked DVD.
