  • Amazing Movie!

    By Master Brently
    To anybody who thought this movie was bad you have serious mental issues. This movie is great! I don't take critics word for movies ever and neither should you. Heck don't believe what I'm saying about it just go watch the thing for yourself and use your brain to form your own opinion. Be a big kid for once.

    I saw this movie's poster in a dumpster outside my apartment while running away fom a gang of "fill in the blank here_______" and I thought this story would be relatable and man was I right! I loved Freddie Prince Jr. in his Oscar Worthy role in the groundbreaking Scooby Doo movies but the Jessica Biel stole the show for me as the leprosy ridden, dragon-slaying ninja, that he fell in love with, and who wouldn't??????? In the beginning of the movie i was surprised to see that Oprah was in the opening scene, and even more surprising was to see that she was dancing in some leotard... I guess she "Summer Caught" the grooooooove. But the plot got really deep when the main male's mother died of a hidious dragon masacre and he was summoned by the buddah baby to avenge the death of his 'mother". But the twist. It was his aunt! Not his mother!!! I vommited as this became a reality. So at the end of the movie, his mom walks up to him and says "Thank you for avenging aunt Margret. even though she hated you and had a severe case of the "Summer booooogy" you stopped at nothing. even the mutated hamsters couln't stop you, my half-witted son. Even though you failed us and let your brother be eaten by a wild pack of dingos and then attacked by the magical pink ponies of district 14 sector 8 of the Blue Hippopotamus but I guess the real tragedy is that my paper plates are still wet from all the rain :( but we will heal as we always do......through song!!!!!" Then she burst out in song! it was a beautiful thing to behold! Congratulations Warners Bros. Entertainment Inc. you did it!!!!! This movie is a "summer catch" that i will gladly smash into the ground repeatedly :)
  • Cape Cod??

    My question is did the director and staff do any research before shooting this mess? This couldn't possibly be any less like the Cape and the prestigious league. Next time you make a movie why don't you spend sometime there and figure it out 1st. Oh for your info. you have to be "Enrolled" in a university to participate in the first place.
