kind of funny but felt a little disorganized
6 February 2016 | by reaseltbimSee all my reviews

The movie had some funny jokes and I liked the Character of Frakie a lot, He was the best thing about it. The movie did the Frankenstein parody pretty well with Bob Sapp doing a great Frank impression. I loved that he played Frankie as a sweet and childish character because it worked in contrast to the "grown up" world around him. It was funny to see a childlike man dealing with adult situations like getting drunk. The plot was a little genetic but it was entertaining enough. I think all the actors did pretty good overall. I really liked Angell Conwell and Drew Sidora, they were great in this.

The only problem I had with the movie was with some of the editing the basketball scenes made me a little bit dizzy. there was too much quick cuts and too much shaky camera. (Some of the club scenes were that way too) Also the story kind of gets lost near the end. The movie was good the first half, I actually loved the first half but once Frankie plays the game it lost some of the charm it had (It then becomes a regular sports movie. I kind of wish it was a little more sci Fi. but I think they could have done more with it. Either have more jokes and make it more funny or they could have added more to the plot, it feels like it is missing something.
