Quotes

Jimmy Fleming: Now this, this Mortas dude... Do you really think he's still alive? Hmm? And if he was... that'd make him, what... a hundred and ten? Kind of like Merv Griffin.

What was this thing exactly?
15 June 2003 | by BlackJokerSee all my reviews

My problem with it was this, it seemed, for lack of a better term, schizophrenic. I watched most of it and had no clue whatsoever what it was trying to be, sometimes it seemed like a TV show pilot, sometimes it was a spoof, sometimes it tried being serious. The problem was that it seemed more like an accidental spoof, as if they were trying for a real kind of movie but screwed up.
