I have seen quite a few films that I haven’t liked. However, there are a select few that have aroused an active hatred. The type of movie that you would leave somebody’s house if they decided to throw it in. Even if you didn’t have a ride out of there. And the nearest settlement was fifty miles away.
For me this movie is Parents. It’s a movie starring Randy Quaid that takes place in the fifties. Ostensibly, it’s a satirization of the social mores of the fifties. In actuality it’s just a film made by a very disturbed individual that should never, ever have been released. It’s about a child who comes to find out that the mystery meat his parents have been serving him is human flesh! Sounds like a lark, doesn’t it? Now, I have a fondness for movies about cannibalism (don’t ask, I don’t know), but this movie is about as pleasant as walking in on your parents in the act. Oh, by the way, that scene is in the movie as well.
Gah! I hate this movie!
So what movie can’t you stand?
