Stick it back in the Garbage Pail
on 1 April 2011
OK, I didn't have great expectations about this films and was warned it was the worst film EVER. However, it isn't the worst film ever but its probably a good rival for it.
For those not familiar or too young to remember, the garbage pail kids were a brand of cards that was going around every school in the US and UK in the mid to late 1980's. Each card had a character with a silly name like Messy Tessy, Up Chuck, Dead Ted etc...
For this film they have chosen 8 of these characters which are basically short actors in fat suits. Windy WInston breaks wind, Vomit Valarie vomits, nerdy Ned pees his pants.... you get the idea.
THe 'story' if I can call it that, sees the Garbage pail kids released from their pail and offer to help a boy get the girl (who looks about 10 years older than him and has the biggest hair you have ever seen). Shes a fashion designer wannabe you see and people flock to buy her trashy 80's gear - however her current bioyfriend is bullying the lead boy.
I did love the 80's retro music, reminded me of Beverly Hills Cop.
It all gets rather silly especially when the "State of the Ugly" taskforce are out to capture ugly people (like the garbage pail kids) so they can lock them up and destory them.
There isn't anything to recommend really unless you want to see it for nostagic reasons. It isn't funny or entertaining but its not boring either. It's just "meh".
No extras on this bare bones disc.
Into the garbage pail this goes.
