It is impossible to take this movie seriously on any level. At times it feels like they are trying too hard to get the joke. Still, there is something rather infectious. It is its insidious nature that gets it into your head and wins you over in the end. The story and pacing are all over the place; the plot seems inconsequential next to the jokes. Basically, just give yourself over to the low budget exploitation homage.
Audio/Video. The technical side of the disk is not all that impressive. Again, this movie has an incredibly low budget and the look and sound of the DVD represent that. The 1.85:1 video is a bit to the soft side and the detail is not exactly great. There are a few sequences that are bathed in one color or another (examples are the bad guy is overdone in blue and a flashback is done in yellow) and they seem to cover up some of it, but still don't look all that good. It is certainly watchable, just don't expect much of anything in terms of really good looking video. The audio is in much the same boat. It is a Dolby Digital 2.0 track and the dialogue is always clear, but it does not have an awful lot of life.
- Commentary. The track features writer/director Glenn Berry and star Zak VanWinkle. This is quite an informative track despite a rather dry delivery. If you enjoy the film, this is worth giving a listen.
- Behind the Scenes.
- Trailers. Two trailers are included.
- Stills. A bunch of stills, nothing particularly special.
Bottomline. Not exactly a testament to great film making, it is not a really good film. It is fun, goofy, and worth your time if you enjoy low budget silliness. It makes the perfect movie to have a bunch of move loving friends over to have some drinks. I suspect the more references you get, the more you drink, the more entertaining this movie becomes. But what do I know? I enjoyed it sober.
