This horror comedy is at least as funny as "Scary Movie," and just
as lacking in plot. Joe, a bar owner and part time psychotic killer,
meets Kate, a manicurist and part time psychotic killer. They bond
over t...展开heir hatred of grapes (I am not making this up), and decide to
marry, and keep their relationship from interfering with their
The female lead, Kate, looks a lot like Molly Ringwald. Joe looks
like me with a beard. There is a subplot involving a plumber who
eats his victims who has a run in with Kate and Joe, but that really
does not go anywhere.
What can I write about a movie with that kind of plot? There are
quite a few bloody murders and even more nude women, which is
weird for a low budget film like this. There are too many scenes of
rape, and the acting is less than stellar. The film quickly makes its
point about love and marriage being hard, even when you are
murderers, and then beats it to death for 88 minutes.
The actors do have fun with the genre, however. There is a funny
wedding scene that rips off "who's on first?" One scene has the
actors talking when a boom mike bonks them in the head, they
sweep it aside without a second glance. The writers play with tons
of film making conventions to the point that you realize this is not
going to be a Shakespearean, or even Adam Sandlerian, smart
I just cannot believe how much I laughed through this. Joe and
Kate would argue about where their relationship is going while
disposing of bodies. The plumber/killer/cannibal is very good. The
gore is cheap but good.
I recommend this like I recommended "Scary Movie," with some
reservations and a stern warning that this will probably not enrich
your life in any way. Bon appetit!
