I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had watching this movie. In his directorial debut, David Arquette chose to do a homage/parody of the famous "themed" slasher films of the seventies and eighties. Instead of a hockey mask and campers or a "holiday" theme, our killer wears a Ronald Reagan mask and kills hippies. Our protagonists, sort of, are a group of pill-popping hippies on their way to a kind of "Burning Man" or "Woodstock" in the woods type concert. On the way to the concert our lovable, soon to be messily killed, hippies have to deal with paintball shooting/bottle throwing rednecks, old hippies left over from the sixties, several irritating flashbacks, and the occasional nudist (and if you watch the extras, you will discover that the scariest thing in this movie is the "left over from the sixties hippie nudist . . .). Although never in any danger of being confused with John Ford or Michael Curtiz, Arquette does a good job with the material and genre in which he's chosen to work. Don't misunderstand, it is both a b-movie and a parody - so it won't be everyone's cup of tea; but if your tastes run to parodies, b-movies and slasher films . . . or if you've ever thought it would be fun to watch animal rights activists getting mauled or tree huggers finding themselves on the wrong side of a chainsaw, this is the movie for you.
OK now this movie wasn't completely horrible because the whole idea ofa psychopath obsessing himself with Ronald Reagan and then dressing uplike him to go kill hippies actually worked and was pretty frightening.But the gore was really fake looking and the characters were justcompletely dumb because they were really high the whole movie anddidn't pay attention to anything that could have saved their lives. Ilike David Arquette, but I think he needed to rewrite this one a littlebefore he made it and make the gore a little more realistic as well.Overall I give it a 6 out of 10 because it had a good storyline, but itkind of failed as the movie continued on. I would only recommend thisto those who like brainless horror films with dumb characters and fakegore.
Plot: A group of hippies attends The American Love Fest. This festivalunites the free hippies in a massive display of love, freedom, and druguse. The location of the festival is inside a forest and in the midstof the forest there awaits a man hell bent on wrapping his axe aroundthe head of any person who wonders his forest. One by one, hippiesstart disappearing, and this strikes the attention of the sheriff, whoseems to be the only person concerned with the notion of a maniac lostin the woods. After the deaths of a few, the unenviable happens; themasses of hippies find one of the victims tied feet first to one of thebranches of a tree. This instills fear and causes widespread panic.However, it does not last for long; it actually drives the people todwell deeper into the woods, where they party long and hard in front ofa bone fire.The killer, who wears the mask of former President Ronald Reagan,reaches the pinnacle of his efforts when he rampages around the bonefire, rips of limbs, decapitates heads, and chops other body parts on amassive scale. The funny thing is nobody seemed to run away to safety.Instead, they sat and stared as each victim falls prey to Ronald. Theclimax is the most famous slasher movie clichÃ© involving the drug free,socially withdrawn, troubled person, who, you guest it, is of coursefemale, and the only person who did not have sex, fights with the evilRonald Reagan. She eventually kills him with a hammer. Although, guesswhat, Ronald is not dead. The deputy informs the Sheriff that the bodyof Ronald had no been recovered, and the end scene shows Ronaldstabbing the most annoying character in the film - the event manager.Other slasher clichÃ©s include, the murder of the informative old manwho heeds warnings to the unsuspecting victims, the killer who turnsout to be avenging to death of his mother by killing those whorepresent the same people who in his mind killed his mother. The coupleinterrupted during sex who happen to die, the corrupt official, theinteraction with the town locals on the way to the festival, where theyhappen to get drawn into a fight, the crazy ex-boyfriend showing up atthe very end, the law abiding sheriff who is the only person, apartfrom the hero, fearful of things to come, and many others I cannotthink of right now. Oh, hang on, the killer who mysteriously vanishesinto thin air leaving behind nothing other then his mask.View: This is just another clichÃ© filled horror/slasher film thatbrings nothing new to the screen. The setting, plot, characters,dialogue and everything about the film is substandard. Heck, it boredthe hell out of me.Rating: 3/10 - It was terrible, but I've seen worse. I wouldn'trecommend it. It's not even worth downloading the sucker for free.
Gore A+ Theme A+ Originality A+ Acting B- Overall AI went to a Pre-screening in Baltimore tonight at the Historic SenatorTheatre. Went in a little skeptical, but left completely impressed. There is a great deal of originality with the story...I know if you'veseen 1 slasher film you've seen another Slasher film...But this one hasa political message underlying if you follow closely. It has anoriginal theme of Hippies going to the Redwood forest for a "Love Fest"and being hacked-up by an obsessed Ronald Reagan fan. There were a lotof Kills, some drug usage and a lot of nudity. So If you are intoHorror movies just for those reasons then you will like it also. Youcan figure out early on who the Reagan-mask wearing killer is but itdoesn't ruin the movie for you like most horror movies would. CourtneyCox-Arquette has a small Cameo that is very funny. And Paul Ruebensalways saying "F_CK YOU " is funny as hell.Go check it, it will be worth you time and Money.
actually I was interesting to see the the first movie to Thomas Jane myfavorite actor after the legend the punisher movie and after two yearsof that great movie,but i had disappointed and the movie was too badand it never never compare between the last work Thomas Jane did it andthis movie !! the acting is too bad,and that movie cannot consider itas horror movie or fantasy or action or anything !! it may be considercomedy movie not horror movie !! the thing that was may be good in thismovie is the story , but the special effects wasn't completely with it!! so you think as you watch comedy movie not horror movie. and iwonder how great actor like Thomas Jane acting in this loser movie ?however i see this movie as the worst horror movie that ever coming outin the history of the horror movies and please not rate to this movieto the cast and the producer think to do second part of this movie.
The Blood and Gore was a bit comical, but overall it was an enjoyablemovie. Some of the death scenes were done with some creativity and Ithink they hit the nail right in the head as far as depicting howHippies behave and live their lives for nothing, but smoking pot orgetting high with mushrooms, acid and whatever else drug they can gettheir hands on. This concert the Hips were attending reminded me ofthat event in the desert called (The Burning Man). David Arquette useda different approach to directing this and it was an effective approachfor the most part. The acting was decent with some actors being betterthan others. So overall I give this a 6 out of 10. Not bad forArquette's directorial debut.
David Arquette has created a carnival of drug hazed carnage in this funlittle B horror whose political machinations are as subtle as a raceriot. This flick unfairly gets a low rating cuz people just take theirpolitical intrigues too seriously, and while the republican right isportrayed in a rather severe light, the liberal hippies are depicted asretarded imbeciles almost deserving their punishment. The acting,especially for a B movie, was decidedly competent. Arquette's directionshow that his career should rightfully be found in the director'schair. The story itself was funny, inventive, and wonderfullyconvoluted without being overdone; and that dialog... The camera waswonderfully dedicated to expressing the fog of a drug bender in thethroes of a blood fest. Good clean fun this was, naked granola soakedin blood. Genruk'Evil Eye Reviews
We've seen a lot of slashers already that are intended asthrowbacks/tributes to the 80's Â the era when this horror sub genrewas at its peak of popularity Â but David Arquette takes his 80's loveeven a couple of steps further, as the killer in his directorial debutis obsessed with, and even wears a mask resembling the President whowas in charge of the White House for the largest part of the 80'sdecade. "The Tripper" is a fun and imaginative piece of splatter cinema(much better than, for instance, the simultaneously released butmassively over-hyped "Hatchet") that effectively blends nostalgicslasher clichÃ©s, over-the-top political satire and a whole lot ofunsubtle gore effects. The action takes place in a remote and forestryregion; all the lead characters are either dim-witted teenagers ormentally underdeveloped hillbillies and the maniac with the axe is acompletely deranged and unstoppable killing machine! What more couldyou possibly expect? The film even opens with a good old-fashionedcrazed 60's flashback, which immediately explains the madman'ssympathies for Ronald Reagan. A young boy witnesses how hippies preventhis struggling father from reclaiming a forest whilst his severely illmother lies dying in bed at home. Blinded by rage, the boy picks up achainsaw and violently attacks the lead hippie. Only moments before theassault the boy was staring at Governor Reagan on TV, and his "Peopleare more important than trees" speeches clearly made an everlastingimpact! The action than jumps forward to present day and we follow avan filled with stoned teenagers as they're on their way to attend thebiggest annual and hippie-themed music festival in the woods. Guess whoshall be present as well and will go conservative Republican on theirbutts? "The Tripper" is reasonably fast-paced, light-headed and veryeasy to digest. Arquette clearly opted for a comical approach of thegenre right from the beginning, presumably following the tradition ofthe "Scream"-trilogy in which he starred, but still you can't helpthinking the concept of this film also had a lot of suspense-potential.The idea of an old-fashioned, conservative and Reagan obsessed killertaking on a group of stoned kids could easily have resulted in a muchmore grim and sadist movie, but instead the killer is simply alife-sized Reagan caricature and fires off legendary presidentialone-liners like "There you go again" and anecdotes about jellybeans.There are quite a few familiar faces in the cast and they allcontribute a pretty reasonable performance, particularly Thomas Jane asthe small town sheriff and Balthazar Getty as the stalking ex-boyfriendof one of the partying teens. The gore is plentiful enough to satisfythe majority of the horror-loving crowd, but there's never any trulysick or revolting stuff shown on screen. "The Tripper" is not a greator even highly memorable film, but it certainly entertains while itlasts and sets positive expectations for David Arquette's furthercareer as a director.
From the opening quote by Ronald Reagan to the intensely sadistic violence in the first few minutes of the film, you know The Tripper will be loaded with sex, drugs, and rock `n roll - as well as extreme political jabs and hippie killing. So what's not to love? Well, as Reagan himself once said, "You can tell a lot about a fellow's character by the way he eats jellybeans." No, I don't get it either.A group of hippie fodder trek to a small town in the middle of a forest to participate in the Free Love Festival and indulge in massive quantities of narcotics. However, they soon discover they're not exactly welcome when they are assailed by paintball gun toting rednecks, the local police, and an axe-wielding serial killer who fancies Ronald Reagan. The Tripper's strongest point of originality (not that there have been other hippie serial killer movies) lies within its psychopathic murderer who dons a suit, a tie, and a President Reagan mask as he metes out his vicious carnage. With an origin as brutally twisted as Freddy or Jason, Ronnie seems destined to make his mark as a deranged killer worth rooting for. And we do, but not because he's so compelling a villain, but rather because his prey is so uninterestingly bland - which is a shame when the protagonists contain six young stars and one of them is Jason Mewes, who should have been right at home with the offbeat comedy and drug humor. Jaime King adequately embodies the screaming primary victim, and while her character gets more interesting as the film progresses, there's still relatively little motivation to continue supporting her survival. The majority of entertaining characters are the supporting ones - those who give quick one-liners and quirky mannerisms and get out before their presence begins to bore. Of the main cast, Tom Jane provides the only praiseworthy performance as he takes the role just seriously enough without outstaying his welcome skepticism. Deceptive trailer aside, at its core The Tripper is a horror movie. And while it does a decent job of bringing blood and scares to the table, the main course seems tainted with a bit too much social and political parody and an abundance of psychedelic contamination and cocky humor. The film doesn't take itself seriously and makes no attempt at persuading the audience to do otherwise. This wouldn't be a problem if The Tripper focused on comedy, but at every turn we're faced with another seriously demented killing and only mild spurts of dark humor. The less you know about the Reagan administration the less likely you'll appreciate the political commentary and jokes that pepper the script. At times the horror elements work surprisingly well, and with a uniquely terrifying antagonist, The Tripper starts to look wholly original. However it's not long before that illusion wears off and the film falls into a damaging amount of clichÃ©s for a film not parodying thrillers. In this medley of blood, hippies, and Ronald Reagan, psychedelic creativity reigns supreme, but those not accustomed to Arquette's bizarre humor and unconventional antics (or who don't despise the fortieth president quite as much) may find this trip easier to swallow with real drugs. - Joel Massie
This review is from: The Tripper (DVD) i love horror movies and if its an odd horror movie even better!!! I thought this movie was original and had a great ending. Any true fan of horror will appreciate this movie. Good work Arquette i want more!!!Maureen
There's no need to beat around the Bush. This movie sucks. It gets lost in a haze of decent horror, poorly done dark humor, and atrocious inserts of political history.It's nearly inconceivable how someone could mess up the simple horror formula that has been reproduced a hundred times: scary killer, a little mystery, lots of topless women, tons of fodder, a few sex scenes, maybe some drugs, and a pointless ending. It's a nearly flawless concept. It's too bad the movie is too much like its inept director David Arquette - painful and incompetent.First and foremost, the killer is scary only because he somehow reminded me of an axe-wielding Christian Bale in American Psycho. That would have been enough, but noooooo. Arquette had to make an unbearable attempt at being clever by making the villain wear a Ronald Reagan mask and speak in a poorly done impersonation of his most famous catch-phrases. The attempt only works for the braindead.The hippie sacrificial lambs in this movie are nearly pointless. Sure, there is Thomas Jane as a sheriff - who probably signed on because he wants to do Courtney Cox - along with Jay (Jason Mewes) from Clerks, but the rest are people who at best have been in a truck commercial or something, but they're fairly abysmal and surely not memorable. Regardless of their past accomplishments, or lack thereof, none is interesting enough to live, or deep enough for viewer empathy. You will want them to die. Anyway, they make their way to the redwoods of California for a Love/Drug/Music festival overseen by an F-bomb spouting Pee Wee Herman where they walk into a slaughterhouse.With so much pure horror potential squandered, it's really a shame. In the same way that Jeepers Creepers was initially intriguing and later exploded, so too does The Tripper. With an interesting buildup and a group of great initial killings, the movie shows promise. With the first decapitation I cheered. And then the suck began.No story was developed, secondary antagonists were thrown in for no reason other than to give Arquette a reason be in the movie, and the rest devolves in a steaming pile of political commentary, horrible drug jokes and special effects, and pointlessly predictable murders. Eventually it becomes evident that the movie is horrible and nearly impossible to enjoy unless drunk or stoned. It's a complete mess, and it sucks. I implore you; don't watch it.
To sum it up, this is nothing more than a pathetic attempt at a halfa--ed comedic Friday The 13th rip off with a liberal underlying theme.David Arquette is now and always will be less than a 'B' actor, whatmakes him think now he's a director? If he had what it takes to be aleading actor, he would have made it by now. I'm surprised Arquettedidn't get Michael Moore to co-direct this rubbish. This movie is pureTripe. Atrocious story line, worthless acting and just a total waste ofmoney, time and film. I guess you really don't need talent to be anactor in Hollywood these days. Arquette and his wife Courtney Cox proveit with this trash. The movie is so improbable and lackingintelligence, if I were in a theatre I'd of got up and walked out. Iassume it was a "Fun" movie for Arquette to have made, it's appallingfor the audience that sees it. If you haven't already seen this, don'twaste your time.
**1/2In "The Tripper," a slasher movie with a political conscience, a serial killer wearing a Ronald Reagan mask stalks a group of anachronistic hippies (so anachronistic they have cell phones along with their tie dye t-shirts and psychedelic van) who have come to the forests of Northern California to celebrate free love and partake in unlimited drug use at a Woodstock-type outdoor event. The Red State/Blue State divide is never far from the filmmakers' minds as a bunch of gun-toting rednecks go up against a group of Flower Power love children who suddenly descend on the area. The saving grace, if indeed there is one, of this gory, but not particularly disturbing, splatter-fest is the tongue-in-cheek humor it manages to display from time to time. Otherwise, this odd little mixture of horror movie cliches and outdated political satire (does anybody really care about the Reagan administration any more?) falls strangely flat.
A group of young drug users and liberty-loving attend the Free LoveFestival. But, of course, not everyone is in love with free love ordrugs. Take, for example, Ronald Reagan. In this film, we see whathappens when an ax-wielding Gipper faces off against a forest full ofstoners.Although this film is considered a 2006 release, I still consider it a2007 release due to its limited release. And in 2007 two horror iconsreleased a new film: David Arquette and Rob Zombie. Zombie, a horrorfan all his life, made the less-than-perfect "Halloween" where violenceand wrestlers are all we get. Arquette, who has appeared in many, manyhorror films, combines gore, political satire, and an amazing cast tocreate a fun, fast-paced and fresh film. (Arquette also wrote this, aswell as stars in a minor role -- his brother gets a much larger one.)Thomas Jane ("The Punisher"), James King (who I loved as Angela in"Slackers"), Jason Mewes ("Feast"), and Paul Reubens ("Blow") appear. Iwas just blown away with the cast here. Mewes, not known for hisacting, really pulled it together for this film. King starred and wasmore lovely than ever. And Reubens was both evil and hilarious, aperfect combination -- not to mention almost setting a record forprofanity in one scene.Some of the gore was cheesy. The chopped off hand scene was a bit fakelooking. Okay, a lot fake looking. And I really don't like the drugvision camera shots. I've complained in other reviews (most notably"Snakes on Plane") how much I dislike using distorted vision to showthe viewpoint of a monster, or in this case a high person. It justseems cheesy. But, at least, they didn't need a dozen establishingshots of marijuana plants to let you know it was a drug movie (like"Evil Bong").But the fun and action made up for all the flaws. And the politicalsatire was brilliant. Maybe that wasn't from Arquette, or he's secretlysmarter than he comes across. The discussion of Reagan's jellybeans anddeinstitutionalization. Many other political and legal perspectiveswere presented (such as the debate of logging versus the environment)and I was just enthralled. This was a horror film with intelligence.I met Arquette and Mewes in February 2007, and had been extremelyexcited since then to see the film. Despite my high expectations, I wasnot let down at all. Oh, did I mention the nudity? Yes, there's plentyof nudity, too. And a portable toilet scene that outdoes "Hills HaveEyes II". Seriously, folks, this is going to be one of the betterhorror films of 2007. Don't miss your chance to get a copy.
I don't know a great deal about David Arquette, but I wouldn't besurprised to find out that he's an Umberto Lenzi fan; as with TheTripper he's essentially made a new version of Welcome to Spring Break- only instead of college kids its stoners and instead of the beach thefilm takes place in the woods. Oh and there's apparently some politicalcommentary thrown in, but it never gets off the ground as the film istoo busy with gore scenes and teenage kicks...although I did get theimpression that this political commentary was intended to be a bit morethan just an afterthought. Anyway, the film starts off with a sequencethat sees a tree-hugger attacked, before the assailant is brutallykilled by his son (with a chainsaw). The plot then focuses on a groupof stoners that head off to a concert in the woods. On their way to theconcert, they are attacked by a bunch of hillbillies; but they make itthere safe anyway. However, it's not long before dead bodies startturning up; and an axe-man in a Ronald Reagan mask is to blame.The film is basically just your average slasher fare and while thedirector obviously wanted the film to be a bit more than that; if youjust view it as what it is, then you shouldn't be too disappointed withThe Tripper. The plot moves well and is basically a mash up of stonerjokes and murder; with some comments on American politics thrown in.These comments may mean something to someone; but as a non-American, itwas all pretty lost on me. Anyway, the cast is rather good and asidefrom Arquette himself the film also features roles for the likes ofThomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Balthezar Getty, Jamie King; and Jason Meweswho fits in seamlessly as a ganja-obsessed stoner. The killer is one ofthe main standouts; and it is rather odd to see a man wearing a Reaganmask and hacking up hippies with an axe. Arquette capitalises on theidea of the kids being off their heads with several trippy sequencesthat look quite nice. The gore is fairly decent too, which is to thefilm's credit. Overall, this is hardly a great film; but its decententertainment and slasher fans should find something to like.
In the 80's, after seeing his father and lumberjack foreman being hitby a protester against the deforesting and arrested by the police, theboy Gus kills the protester with a chainsaw. In the present days,Samantha (Jamie King), who is traumatized after being abused by herformer boyfriend Jimmy (Balthazar Getty), travels with her potheadfriends in a van to the American Free Love Festival, a rock-and-rollconcert in the woods. Near the location, they are assaulted by threelocal hillbillies, but they succeed to arrive in the festival.Meanwhile, Mayor Hal Burton (Rick Overton) and Deputy Buzz Hall (ThomasJane) try to give a minimum of organization to the event. However, aderanged psychopath serial-killer wearing a mask of Ronald Reagan usesan ax to kill the pacific stoned hippies.The slasher "The Tripper" is a great disappointment. David Arquettecertainly had the intention of making a cult-movie and was supported bya good cast (probably his friends) including a cameo appearance of hiswife and a great cinematography and lightening, but unfortunately thestory never works. Jason Mewes is comfortable performing histraditional role of pothead; the sexy Jaime King has a good performancein the role of Samantha but the good actor Thomas Jane is displaced inhis silly role. Further, the political anti-war jokes and speeches ofthe Republicans and Ronald Reagan are boring. In a cheap manipulation,the Brazilian DVD highlights the name of Courtney Cox-Arquette in themovie, misleading her fans. My vote is four.Title (Brazil): "PerseguiÃ§Ã£o Assassina" ("Assassin Pursue")
I don't really have a whole lot to say about this film. Arquette's film was an attempt at a spoof slasher political satire. Unfortunately it really didn't succeed at anything it seemed to be going for. Usually these films are right up my alley, and the idea of an axe wielding Ronald Reagan scores high marks, but something about it wasn't working. It's not a terrible film, it does have a few laughs, it's got some sauce for the gorehounds, and how can you go wrong with a movie that features Fishbone? All departments just seemed a bit halfassed though. It also doesn't help much that I can't stand Jason Mewes, who's basically playing a slight variation on his Jay character(he'll be stuck in that mode for the rest of his film career I guarantee). The Tripper isn't the worst horror/slasher spoof out there by any means, but Student Bodies it ain't.
A group of modern-day hippies (Jaime King, Lukas Haas, Jason Mewes,Marsha Thomason, Paz de la Huerta and Stephen Heath) go to aWoodstock-like concert filled with drugs, music and topless ladies. Buttheir fun is over, when a serial killer in a Ronald Reagan mask comesto stalk these fun loving hippies.Directed by first-time director:David Arquette (Best known as Dewey inthe "Scream" trilogy) made an lively black comedy/horror film that isentertaining but it is truly helped by a good cast as well... includingThomas Jane (Best known for "Deep Blue Sea", "The Mist" and "ThePunisher") as a by-the-book sheriff. Director Arquette certainly has aneye for visual style, especially when the female lead character findsherself unexpectedly in a acid trip. Arquette also doesn't shy awayfrom the gore and the social commentary is surprisingly intelligent. Iwould love to see more movies from Arquette, if he decides to directmore."The Tripper" is a surprising good movie, the horror audiences at thefestivals were kind to it and the film critics as well. This picture iscertainly one of the most underrated movies of 2006. As film criticLeonard Maltin says it... (Who gives it an above average review) Thisfeels more like a grindhouse film that GRINDHOUSE and he's right. Fansof dark comedies and horror movies will have an blast with this. Thisis worth watching. Co-written by the director. Watch for the director,Courtney Cox (Who also produced the film and the director's wife) andWes Craven in amusing cameos. *** 1/2 out of *****.
A group of hippies attending a modern day Woodstock-esque music festival find themselves being picked off one by one by a killer wearing a Ronald Reagan mask.The idea behind this film, that of a conservative "President" killing drug-taking hippies, is a good (albeit warped) one, and thus it should have been a good film, but unfortunately, "The Tripper" falls down in its execution (no pun intended). It takes far too long for the killings to really get started - the first half of the movie primarily comprises an extended introduction to the characters who we know are later going to meet horrible deaths, and watching them getting stoned - and once the killing starts, the premise behind the film completely evaporates. According to the DVD cover, the Ronald Reagan killer is meant to be targeting hippies, but in reality, he pretty much just kills everyone who crosses his path (red-necks and Republican voters included), thus rendering the whole film completely pointless. In the film's favour, I will admit that some of the death scenes are pretty cool (if you find ultra-gory horror violence amusing) and that might be enough for some viewers, but I personally prefer gore films that have something resembling a coherent plot.
A nut job dresses up like Ronald Reagen and kills hippies in DavidArquette's directorial debut.Fun stuff. I had a great time with this. I really liked the setup thatgave our killer his motivation and stuff. That was absolutelyhilarious. The first few minutes really set the tone for the film well.It was totally demented.I have only two complaints... --One, the blood looked very fake. It wasreally watery. But this rarely stops me from enjoying a good horrorfilm. --Two, here's a deep, thought-out, insanely detailed analysis of90% of the characters: stoner. That's all they thought about, that'sall they talked about, and that's all they did. Acid, ecstasy,whatever. I know they're hippies, but it seemed a bit stereotypical todepict them as being completely defined by drugs, and the nature of thejerk character made the film sort of seem like it was promotingdrug-use. ...The combination almost seemed hypocritical to me. Butwhatever, it made me lose pity for those characters and made the sightof their deaths more enjoyable. I'm probably missing some satiricalmessage from it all because I'm stupid and I suck at pulling thosetypes of things out of movies. Anyway, the more spotlight characterswere a little more fleshed out. That was good.There was one particular moment I actually rewound a couple of timesbecause I found it so hilarious, but I won't give it away.Don't take this film too seriously. It's supposed to be a bit morecomedic. Give it a rent if you're not as easily amused as me. It'snothing groundbreaking, but it had a lot of hilarious moments andkills.
