"Look! Famous people! Famous directors! No laughs!"
The 90's equivalent of a "Cannonball Run" movie. All the celebrities, none of the talent.This is the result of a bunch of semi-hip directors who decided to make a movie together. When I heard about it, I was incredibly excited. Tarantino and Rodriguez were two of my new favorites, and I figured the other two directors couldn't be all THAT bad...So I waited. And waited. And waited. I saw the script for sale in a bookstore, and I saw the premiere on TV, so I kept waiting. This film took forever to come out. Turns out it was pretty heavily re-edited after getting MAULED in test screenings, and finally it came out in theatres for about a week. And it's basically a shell of a movie. You get these famous folk who show up for a second, we say, "Look! It's Madonna/Bruce Willis/the chick from "Flashdance/Antonio Banderas!) and then they wander off. It's exactly like the lame-ass Burt Reynolds movies of the early 80's, where Burt, Dom, and Jerry Reed would get together all their wacky celebrity friends for really horrible movies, where we would say "Look! It's Dean Martin/Daisy from "Dukes of Hazzard/Tony Danza/Jamie Farr!) and then they wandered off. This movie just sucks. Oh, yeah, the plot. Some bellboy has a bad night and meets lots of wacky people. Oh, and Marisa Tomei is hot. Even as a pothead.With this and "Destiny Turns on the Radio", I nearly burned my copy of "Pulp Fiction".
