Simple nonsense, don't waste your time
13 August 2010 | by fishbelly2002See all my reviews

A complete disaster trying to sell stars and non sense humour. Copying here and there, trying very hard to make it funny, but really fails big time.

The selling point of the movie is to have all the so called stars and celebrities to appear briefly, which turns out to make the whole movie looks cheap and unplanned.

To cut out the budget the movie involves a lot of scenes with sponsorship, and eventually goes ALL OUT like an infomercial on TV, which is really a disgrace to any film making.

Simply save your precious 1.5 hours, I can't even find a point in the movie that I can laugh at (given I'm also a Honger), seems like a film for elementary students more than a real movie.
