| Oh my God . . .
This is one of the stupidest movies ever made. If you plan to view it seriously, I urge you not to watch it. If, however, you watch it solely for the entertainment value of its unintentional hilarity, it may be worth watching once--maybe.

There is hardly a single redeeming aspect of the film, except maybe the female character (there really is only one female character, except for the mother, who hardly counts as a character at all), because she is hot. Though the fact that she ends up with Gunther at the end of the movie diminishes this fact somewhat; she should have stuck with his little brother.

Other than that, the film is a disaster. The script is pandering, inane, cliché-ridden, and occasionally so mind-boggling stupid that you begin to wonder what the screenwriter was smoking when he/she wrote it. The acting is terrible--though the actors, to their credit, aren't exactly given a whole lot to work with. The music and cinematography are bland and unmemorable. The editing is competent--I guess.

When the best thing you can say about a movie is that the editing is competent, you know something's wrong.
