  • Poster: C

Review:

Well, the title says it all and the poster evokes the spirit of the title, but little else.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

I'll give the trailer credit for one thing: it sure makes the film look bizarre. With a film so odd as this, there has to be a quality that will pull a diverse audience in and the promise of strange comedy could do it.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
