[first lines]
Rock Slyde: My name is Rock Slyde, and I blame my mother. With a name like that I was destined for one of two careers. That's detective work, or porn. After starring in two art films, I decided the glamor life of a porn star wasn't for me. Besides, I was hung like a hamster.

Warburton's Voice...that is all
16 August 2010 | by chelanoSee all my reviews

First off I will say that the story didn't really have much going for it. So at that point I thought it would be hard to keep myself interested. But there was one thing that no matter what happened in the movie, always had me smiling. It was Patrick Warburton. He is an actor that has a very distinct voice that you will always remember. Every time he talked in the movie, I was laughing. Some of the dialog he used was cheesy, but worked since he had such a funny voice. There were some other interesting characters, but they were not as good. Andy Dick was the so called bad guy. It is hard to like Andy Dick as certain characters. He seemed to fit as this one though. The girl that was working for Warburton was Elaine Hendrix. I didn't like her as the character she was. She was a bit annoying. So overall if it wasn't for Warburton and some of his interesting and funny lines, I am not sure if I would of liked the movie at all.
