Spiteful, bizarre and bad taste
22 March 2019 | by VHSdynamiteSee all my reviews

There's a good premise here, a forgotten child star seeking revenge on his terrible co-star. The faux retro shows they have come up with are pretty cool. Unfortunately, the plot is just bizarre and messy, the characters without heart, and the villain unbelievably vile and one-dimensional.

The jokes are repetitious and almost compulsively bad taste. Most of them are awkward like a Ross Geller joke without laugh track because the editing doesn't support them either. Nor the sound design: Sometimes instrumental music drowns conversations that could be snappy and funny.

The film seems to take a stand against greedy people exploiting nerds, but at the same time it seems to spite nerd culture. It never misses an opportunity to tell you how sweaty nerds are and that furries and hentai are weird.

The cultural references seem forced. Like, we don't need to be told that a man hanging from the ceiling in a harness is a reference to Mission Impossible. And no "Game of Thrones" fan would say "you Game of Thrones Mountain wannabe".

This film at least demonstrates the importance of script and post-production, because there are enought talent here to make a better movie.
