Storyline

A documentary filmmaker, who has spent the last 15 years making films like "Aluminum: Our Shiny Friend," is finally given the chance to make the documentary on Indian farming he has always wanted to. The catch? He must simultaneously direct a porn film. But as he tries to make the porn film, which he turns into a musical called "Halloween in the Barracks," he must deal with a temperamental actor, a fundamentalist preacher, and other obstacles. Written by Mike Myers <mmyers@ucsd.edu>

Unbelievable...
7 March 2006 | by thefuturist88See all my reviews

I had been looking for this for a while, because I am a huge fan of Robert Downey Jr. When I purchased it in a thrift store the other day and watched it last night, I knew why it was rare and out-of-print. I only got through the first twenty minutes before I had to stop it and ask myself why I had even sat through that much. It's absolutely disgusting and poorly acted (though if you've seen any of Robert Downey Sr's other movies this doesn't seem strange). Plus, it was written by Martin Mull, who isn't that great of an actor (he was pretty bad on "Sabrina The Teenage Witch").

It is kind of cool to own this movie because of it's rarity, but as much as I love Robert Downey Jr, I can't bring myself to finish watching this. If you're a fan as well, avoid this movie. You have been warned.
