Man, I was hoping for an awesome Chase/Aykroyd/Candy flick. It just ended up being a little too dark to enjoy. Kind of like a “Candy” bar.
Original? Yes. Good? Maybe. As I said in my introduction, it may not be what you would expect, don’t be fooled by the beginning.
There are some really good characters with a lot of flavor to them, but everyone ends up being a little one-dimensional.
Super-detailed sets are the main attraction, photographed through a similarly zany lens. The costumes are pretty good too.
Pretty good practical effects, especially in the costumes and make-up. The music was a little bland, the guest stars doing little to help.
Maybe worth a watch, but just so.
