Live Laughing! Die Laughing!

"I literally flew across the continent (from St. John's, Newfoundland to San Francisco, California) to attend the first screening of Live Freaky! Die Freaky! I even booked the first 2 tickets to the show. Disappointed, I was not. Mingling with John Roecker (director) and members of Rancid and AFI, entering the decrepit-looking Roxy theater on the "Helter Skelter" carpet, and sitthing through the most outrageous dark comedy I've ever seen was the time of my life. Green Day's Billie Joe (my idol, for the record) was superb as the voice of Charles "Hanson", his shameless, sexual, shock-value comedy kept me in stitches, along with AFI's Davey Havok's portrayal of Sharon "Hate's" very gay hair stylist. The film does have a lack of taste, but we were all warned, so people need not complain if they choose to see it. Personaly, I loved how the entire audience would switchs from laughing hysterically to groaning with disgust (and I'm pretty sure they did, too). Basically, this is a risque, dark, shocking movie that is not for the blue collar working man (or his pretty wife). However, if you like to see people pushing the envelope and doing something completely out of whack (but still trying to make a point), then please give this movie a chance. It has gotten some rotten reviews, just remember you are your own best critic."
Worst movie ever

"I don't care how punk rock this film is. I love punk and I'm a fan of Tim Armstrong and AFI. However, this film is the worst thing I've ever paid to see. I was at the San Francisco premiere and it was nice meeting everyone involved in the movie. When it came to watching the movie itself, I was completely disappointed. I like indie films, stupid humor, and the concept of DIY as much as the next person. However, this film was just done in such poor taste. The editing is terrible. The story is hard to follow. There's almost nothing I like about the movie. The only real funny part is hearing Davey Havok of A.F.I. be the voice of the gay hairstylist. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy this. Try to borrow it from someone else if you can help it. It's not worth $21.99. To be honest, I'd give it less than 1 star if I could but that's the lowest that the rating will go."

"As depraved as this movie is, I think it's great! Anyone who thinks this movie sucks needs to lighten up a little bit and get a sense of humor. I thought is was very intertaining. Yes, some of the movie was a bit over the top, but that's what makes it fun!"
