Movie Reviews

"Transcendentally Goofy"
T. Boyls | Nashville, TN | 01/31/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I just watched this movie on cable today and couldn't look away because I was so entertained but not in the sense that the film makers intended. I kept laughing at the ridiculous MacGyver-esque schemes the main character devised to outwit dangerous professional killers. Formerly a creator of movie special effects, the main character is now an inventor of toys. So what defenses does he use when armed killers are chasing him?? Toys!! This plays out like a rejected episode of MacGyver where hair spray, baked beans, and a life size robotic clown are all manipulated to decieve and ultimately defeat the hapless bad guys.
I'm not trying to be mean spirited here, and don't mean to offend people that might like this film, but this movie is truly dumb and unintentionally hilarious. Btw, the quoted title for this review is from Siskel and Ebert's review of this movie. After laughing hard at the grocery store scene of the movie I couldn't resist watching the review on their web site. Watching Siskel and Ebert's response to this "true disaster" was just as entertaining as the movie and much much shorter."
