    ★★★★

    Oh man, where can I even start with a movie like this? I guess with the disclaimer that this is a terrible movie by almost any standard you could weigh a movie by. The key to that sentence was the word *almost*, because this movie is a totally hilarious mess.

Everything about this movie is done well, and the results are fantastic.
