2nd worst movie ever
18 September 2011 | by PeopleundertheSee all my reviews

This is pretty close to being the worst movie ever. It's running a close second I think behind that movie about the car tire that rolls around vaporizing birds mysteriously. Everything about this movie is bad from the sound to the lighting, the acting, and worst of all how predictable it is.

Some scenes are extremely dark so much so that you can barely see what's going on and look like a complete amateur set it up.

The acting is pretty bad as well from all angles. In fairness to the actors the script was probably pretty bad in the first place. My favorite scene that I winced at the most was where an argument was happening and the main character repeated the same word at least 10 times. Really? Who wrote this!

The script is insanely cliché as well... Every character plays a stereotype.

If there is one redeeming quality about this flick is that it does partially take place at Sams hofbrau in LA, a strip club I have been to. The redeeming part comes from a few topless shots in the movie. A couple of the girls are even kind of cute. That's about it though. Watch only if your really bored and/or hungover like I was.
