I say ‘film’ because what I was subjected to can only be described as a series of sketches and set pieces. I’m not high-brow; a good bood or fart joke will get a giggle out of me, but here not even those stalwarts could stem the tide of utter tripe that was being presented. Not only are the jokes devoid of humour, but a few of them are 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. Not cool.
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 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?
