Did You Know?


The mention of the turkey legs actually being emu meat is a reference to an old existing (though of course untrue) urban legend about Disney, borne out of the fact that the turkey legs are quite large. See more »

Jim: [on the phone] What? I don't understand.
Man: Listen to me. Don't let your imagination run wild. It's a transitional period.
Jim: So, you're firing me for no real reason, then?
Man: Well, there's a little more to it than that.

i have watched this movie (not film), and i feel compelled to warn everyone who are pondering about wasting their time on it. it is a bad one. the first thing to notice is the horrendous, bad "acting". if they were to come and say it was on purpose, to depict the average mainstream Joe and his family in the u.s. of a., it would be only an excuse. it is obvious this is a very low quality independent film that "has to" recur to the pathetic guerrilla filmmaking card, as though that itself were worthy of cinematic grandeur or merit of whatever kind. i am utterly baffled by the good reviews and comparisons to the works of Polanski or David Lynch! certainly, those who express such opinions are ignorant people who have very little knowledge of cinema (or even common sense), and have not watched quality work (ever?), mostly by European and some Asian filmmakers, who have a deeper human sensibility. but, compare it to David Lynch?! we are talking about a master artist here. have these people watched David Lynch films at all? if they have, they must have very bad perception problems (no, it is not about people having different tastes and all that; you don't compare plastic bottles with The Beatles' Blackbird). then, the plot: totally childish. does one have to praise this director for stating the obvious Disney's superficial appeal on the unthinking mass? umm, no. this looks more like a high school project, at best. then, the "surrealism" in this is so weak it's not even surrealism, it is a botched attempt at it, rather. all the situations are but puerile ideas that are as shallow as the criticism they pretend to attack. it all has a very "american" reek to it, but it cannot be claimed that it was on purpose. all in all, a very bad waste of resources. oh, wait! i may have missed the point! maybe these guys were just having a laugh! maybe they were like, hey guys, what if we make this "guerrilla film" at Disney...? hey dude, that would be awesome! let's do it! and then, it all turned even better, with promotion and people praising it and comparing it to a Lynch film!!!!! hmmm...maybe i could make a guerrilla film about a bunch of guys making a guerrilla film and being compared to David Lynch...! maybe i could even be compared to David Lynch...!!!
