'It's like you and I are clipped from the same coupon'

If you are a fan of good movies, you need to see The Theory of the Leisure Class. I don't recommend it because it's a good movie, but because it is so bad that after seeing it, all other movies will look ten times better and you will be able to enjoy a much wider range.

The lead actress (and co-producer) of the film is named Tuesday Knight. When we saw this on the box, we hoped it would at least be a p0rno, but it turns out the acting was too bad to be p0rn. The acting was bad, the dialogue was bad, the plot was bad, and there were millions of plot holes and loose ends... but there was an exploding car!

I hope it was made as a joke, or that the ultimate crappiness was part of the overall message of the film. It is one of those movies that you have to see with a group of friends, alcohol and low expectations. Which we did. And we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, speculating on how much worse it could get.

(Answer: a lot worse. Blowing up a strip mall worse.)

It is terrible terrible terrible and I highly recommend that you run out and rent it today.

hmm, I still realized that at my worst*, at least I smell the same, and that is comforting

anyway, that sounds MST3K quality. I remember a movie that an "ambitious young women wrote for herself to star in" called Soul Catchers or something. It was unbelievably bad and we all knew the secrets WAY before they were revealed in words. so yeah....

* = that might not mean what you think it means

I notice it was co-written by Amber Benson, who played Tara on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer (or BTVS, as the cool kids say). Maybe she should stick to acting.

And directed by lunchmeat!

Why did she have to besmirch BTVS that way?

Wait...are you sure you weren't actually watching the Star Wars prequels?

For more bad movie fun, I highly recommend "Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter." I mean, is that the best title EVER or what?

(The best part is, it's not even Frankenstein's daughter. It's his GRANDDAUGHTER.)

But this wasn't even one of those campy monster movies. I think this was supposed to be good!

Sarah, you seem to talk about porn quite a bit. Hmmm, I am beginning to wonder about you.

PS. How'd you like my LLAMA FACE!!!!!! voice mail?

I loved it! I forgot to delete it so it replayed again later and I was like 'What the hell is this?!'
