What the hell was I thinking?
My kids and I went to see it. I’ll take a bit of the blame for the choice. I’d put this movie on the short list of movies I’d be *willing *to go see. Here’s the thing, there wasn’t a big selection of movies to choose from this week, so I figured this might be a decent diversion. Actually, the only reason I’d included it at all is because I know both my teenagers love spoof movies. I’ve about had enough of the Scary Movie, Teenager Movie, Superhero Movie, ad infinitum spoofs, but I supposed one more wouldn’t kill me.
Unfortunately, *Transylmania *is not a spoof at all. It’s a straight up comedy. It is also just really really really really horrible. It stars no one that I’ve ever heard of, and probably luckily. It is completely unfunny. I think the director may have actually been mentally retarded. The acting is on a par with your average 5th grade drama club. The editing looks like it was done by a one-eyed narcolepsy sufferer with a hook for a hand. And the story may as well have been shat out whole by whichever criminal had the stones to put money up for this “movie” in the first place.
I could explain the story to you but it was so unbelievably stupid that I’ve supressed it from my memory.
There is literally not one funny moment in the whole movie. A couple of the actors I could tell might actually by funny with the right material – the Asian pothead guy and the lead actor dude actually had decent timing – but this movie was a waste.
The only decent part of the experience was when the movie was over, me and my kids sat in the otherwise empty theater and laughed about how bad it was for a good 10 or 15 minutes.
Mostly, I just felt the need to admit that I’d paid to go see this so I can finally let Krippendorf’s Tribe off the list for worst movie I ever paid to see.
