Not a good movie, not that funny, not dramatic, not entertaining
29 March 2018 | by omachronSee all my reviews

There are a few funny moments in the film, but they're just moments. The story is absurd, but it's more in the realm of crazy and surreal rather than hilarious.

Calling it "low-budget" doesn't excuse the weak script. How much does it cost for paper? I know that time to write a screenplay is not free, but seriously, write a good script before you start shooting. Everything else was done well - the visuals, the sound, etc. But no amount of money could make this script into something good or funny.

Avoid.
