The Ten Worst Films of 2012 (#1)
Let me just start by saying the fact that anything beat Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is kind of amazing. I was so sure I had found the year's worst film in that movie, I almost didn't even bother watching this one.
2010's Piranha 3D might have been disgusting and generally pretty dumb, but it was also way more entertaining than it had any right to be. Its totally unnecessary sequel was the exact opposite.
When a movie contains lines like, "Josh cut off his penis because something came out of my vagina," it's a pretty good bet that all involved expect for it to shoot for the so-bad-it's-good class of comedy.
But this is just bad.
Between the uninspired performances, the amateurish special effects and the complete lack of entertainment, you have to wonder why this was even made in the first place. John Gulager might want to familiarize himself with the phrase, "Less is more." There's so much gratuitous nudity and violence, it actually gets old pretty quickly. It's probably not a great sign when the film's main characters are close to death, and you couldn't care less.
And, for your viewing pleasure. . .
