Originally written for Flickering Myth
For just over an hour I was subjected to what I can only describe as a series of sketches and set pieces. Even the worst comedy can generally elicit a smirk from me with a fart joke or boob gag, but here not even those stalwarts could stem the tide of utter tripe that was being presented. It was like that scene in Clerks 2 (if you know you’ll know). In addition, some of the ‘jokes’ were in bad taste. We are treated to the sights of a baby being plied with alcohol and Steve Job’s body being used as Apple product placement.
It is all so shoddily thrown together that it was completely joyless and a real chore to get through. The only bonus feature is a look behind the scenes. Writer/Director Craig Moss openly admits that the spoof genre isn’t an ‘in’ thing right now but doesn’t mind. He also seems to be fully aware of the thrown together nature of the film, which quite frankly is inexcusable. This guy supposedly grew up watching classic spoof movies, but he must have had his eyes closed as he has clearly not learnt anything. It’s as though he doesn’t care! So why should we?
