4.0 out of 5 stars "WHY WHY WHY DELILAH!" So BAD it's GOOD, 13 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Playing God [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
This film is terrible but worth watching for it's rubbishness. Not in the same league as THE ROOM which I consider the best worst film ever made, Playing God has a lot of bad acting, stupid scenes and a crap clichéd plot. Duchovny plays an ex surgeon hired by an unconvincing drug dealer who looks like Julian Clary to patch up shot people. Sorry he's a " criminal" and not a drug dealer. There are Russian gangsters with American accents, a Liverpudlian henchman complete with John Lennon glasses and an FBI agent who can't act. Raymond the criminal is terrible and has no air of menace. At one stage Duchovny is sent to a bus to fix up a dead guy. The scene is stupid. The craziest scene, worthy of THE ROOM, is where he goes to a biker bar and they all patch up Angelina Jolie which has to be seen to be believed. There are quite a few quotable quotes in this garbage film. It is worth getting if you like bad is good films. It may not be in the top ten but it's a goodie. The final car chase has Ray the wimped out criminal doing lots of bad OTT acting. There are a lot of graphic scenes of people being shot and Raymond seems to live in different places in different scenes.It's not as laugh out loud as other bad films but its a good cinematic wreck. It's good that Duchovny and Jolie are in it as it adds to the overall failure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
