The Best Medicine? kill me now....

Okay, so I get that the movie was made for absolutely nothing. Now I don't mean this is a low-budget B movie...I mean it was made with no budget. Zero. Don't believe me? Look it up. That is the only reason I give it a 3 and not a 1.

So, I borrow the flick from TD, Make myself a Manhattan, hit play, and start laughing. The acting from the "Team" is so shatteringly bad I felt silly watching it. I've seen better acting at the local community theater. Okay, sure this is the leads first "major" film and he didn't get paid. Now I know why. I wouldn't have paid the dude either. Unfortunately the same holds true for most of the actors in this, ahem, film.

There are a few scenes where the comedy saves this from being unbearable. But as a whole it is a yawn. A bad acted yawn.

To wash down this medicine I would have needed three Manhattans.
