Amaturisish home video is as dumb as they come
24 September 2002 | by mpearl404See all my reviews

I caught this amateurish effort on late-late-night Showtime when the only alternatives were infomercials. This apparently home-made video rambled on with a barely discernable plot and featured a family of losers who have something to do with a fruit market and an opera singer who looks like a Saturday Night Live parody of an aged Maria Callas. I watched with disbelief as the amateur ensemble of would-be "actors" stumbled through the film as a lesson in bad ad-libbing.

Either those on IMBD who claim they liked it are related to the video's producers or rank the Cartoon Channel as great TV. What a waste.
