Just plain awful
23 August 2009 | by equazcionSee all my reviews

The cast is what made me give this a shot.

Where to begin... God, this movie is just so bad. The humor is terrible, predictable, and it's all been done before. And been done better.

The acting was so overdone, even for a parody movie. In fact, everything was overdone. This should have been a Disney Channel original movie. It even has those constant cartoonish sound effects, probably intended to be cute, that just come off as childish.

Two stars for quality of the photography, sound work, background music, etc. Meaning that basically it doesn't look like an independent home movie, but rather does look like it cost some substantial money to make. But a Hollywood budget does not a good movie make, and if that needed proving, this movie's done it.
