worst haircut ever
10 September 2007 | by highway020See all my reviews

This comment is really the only sensible thing there is to say about this movie. As a film lover, I didn't even think it was funny. It was fascinatingly bad though, even the credits roll was bad. Really. As for the acting, script, direction, photography, sfx, etc; don't worry, there none of it involved- here my opinion differs with that of the credits roll. The only thing well done, was the stop-motion animation. As for lovers of cheesier and more synthetic than cheezepops: it's a gem. Best consumed under the influence of mind-expanding substances that take off the sharp edges. Oh, and the lifetime achievement for worst haircut is won by Lori Baker
