The helicopter crash at the start is amazing.
I gotta say before watching I thought it would be a gory creature feature, but when I started watching it, it wasn't. Then I thought it was an awful attempt horror-comedy to create an "so-good-it's-bad" cult film out of nothing, and I was wrong again. Then I saw a guy singing and lost all faith. Then I recovered some when I realized it had actually good comedy elements, but it wasn't my kinda humour either.
So I don't know really.
This attempted spoof of B-movies aims for the "so bad it's good" crown, but ends up being just plain bad. The film is aware of its stupidity and believes that by being stupid it will be funny. It's not. I laughed/smiled exactly 1 time at a single one-liner that actually worked. The seemingly real helicopter crash at the beginning was worth seeing, and is a fitting metaphor for the remainder of the film. The rest of the runtime is a series of disconnected 1 to 2-minute skits that are funny in the same vein as a toddler yelling "poop" repeatedly for 83-minutes.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
