Am I the only person who's seen this?
21 August 2011 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

In the more than twenty years the IMDb has existed, not one person has commented on this movie before me. Am I the only person who has seen this movie? I'm wondering if anyone will ever read my remarks on this movie. I am more certain, however, that if anyone else sees this movie, they will think it's as awful as I think it is. It's a low budget production, and while the movie never comes across as seriously cheap, there are some shoddy moments, like how much of the dialogue sounds like it was dubbed over in the editing room. As for the acting, the cast shows some signs of talent, but their efforts are ruined by the fact that almost every character in the movie is utterly obnoxious. (Only Stack Pierce's "Spider" character comes off unscathed.) But the biggest sin the movie makes is that although it's a comedy, there's nothing particularly amusing during the entire running time. It's just a bunch of tired and unimaginative gags. If you still want to track down the movie despite what I've said, a word of warning: Though the on screen title is "It's Murphy's Fault", the title on the VHS box simply titles the movie "Murphy's Fault".
