This movie is so odd that I cannot figure anyway to communicate what type of person might like it. Perhaps if you liked "Shaun of the Dead" BUT wanted to see what is would be like if the production budget was about $100, this might be for you. I can't figure if the acting was deliberately terrible or just totally amateurish. It almost looks like all shots are first take and let the manure fall where it may. That being said we loved it!!!! The plot is laid out in other reviews so I'll skip that.

If you admire cheese in all it's forms, if you think movies like "Dolomite" have artistic value in spite of themselves, if you are unlikely to shut down a DVD once it's been popped in because you think it's below your intellect level,....well this one's for you Bud! I hope this character is part of a series. I enjoy "Downton Abbey", thought "In Brugges" was great. I NEVER turn off "Jaws" when it's on if there's a chance to see Robert Shaw do his speech about the Indianapolis sinking. I love Shakespeare and Bel Canto Opera, the Three Stooges, past & present incarnations of "Cosmos". Not bragging, just saying my tastes are wide ranging. If you are an alien life form like me,...give Grannie a try, she might get to you.
