As bad as this film is, Wallis and McLeod redeem it with their acerbic wit. Together, they talk over the film, calling attention to its many faults, exchanging zingers, and expressing disbelief at the sheer badness of the film. McLeod even adds some inventive props. The result is a highly engaging affair that keeps the audience engrossed throughout the film. To this end, Cinema Fiasco succeeds not only by the quality of their critiques but by fostering a sense of community in the theatre.
Next week, Cinema Fiasco will be razzing Reptilicus, a Danish film about a giant prehistoric reptile. The movie will be bad. Wallis and McLeod, on the other hand, will bring their best.
Veterans lead this week's releases with new albums from Tim Rogers & The Bamboos (Album Of The Week) and Daniel Johns plus albums from Ella Thompson, The Vaccines and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
