OMG Is this a real movie
19 December 2013 | by mrsee-59-412707See all my reviews

I watched this based on some reviews and the trailer. I had to keep watching because the first ten minutes was so bad I thought it can only get better. Wrong, the acting is awful to mediocre and the CGI is at best bad green screen. I wondered if it could be any worse and the answer is yes. On a positive note I decided to show this to a drama class so they could feel better about their performance of a play they did. Sorry kids for exposing you to this nightmare. They opening with the goat is only made better by the girl. A sleeping ......sorry no spoiler. Some good one liners, I think Schneider is Drunk or high, some of the lines he gives are stolen. The yelling gag got old fast! The 3 D effect to think your looking through Shrew eyes is bad at best. Although Schneider's spoil ed star acting is very believable. I am not sure but I wonder if this is computer CGI or a bad piece of software used to edit the footage. Either way this flick is mildly entertaining but not for kids. B movie fans could have fun watching this and compare notes.
