The Origins of Super Crappers
3 August 2010 | by Vincent_BSee all my reviews

Once upon a time at a college party, four highly intoxicated frat boys began writing a movie script. They sat around laughing about farts and how cool it would be to have a superhero whoopee cushion. One of the others managed to log on to the internet and send the whole script they wrote, yes all eight pages, directly to Ray Griggs. Who stole some additional lines from "Return of the Jedi", "Empire Strikes Back", "Star Trek", and "Back to the Future". But Ray needed funding. So he convinced Reuben Lim, Michael Kim Binder, and Fiona Walsh to help fund the movie about a superhero who receives his powers from God and prayer. Ray was also convinced this would assure his movie would be picked up as an option by CBN. This is where Ray really began to shine, he had to find actors just slightly better than the local weatherman, willing to flush any hope for a future in acting, just for a paycheck. Meanwhile back at the frat house the four boys barely remembered that night they almost ruined their lives by having their names attached to this pathetic turd.
