Not the worst movie ever
Comedian Jay Larson plays Keefer, a loser who's lost his job and his lady. Now all he wants to do is smoke pot with his pal Meegosh (Kevin Interdonato), but he still has bills to pay, so they work out a plan to make money off Keefer's sole skill: eating. Together, they create a competitive eating competition that Keefer dominates. Unfortunately, the town's mayor (who, despite being an immoral tub of crap, owns gyms and health food stores) wants to ban unhealthy food, and decides to make Keefer an example, siccing his cops on the eaters. (On a side note, the film takes place in Pennsylvania, but all the bad guys speak with southern accents. Why?)
The plot concept isn't a bad one, with a decent set-up, and enough going on to sustain the film, but the movie doesn't seem to know what to do when it comes to telling the story, instead focusing more on wedging in one-liners and women's body parts (like one extra oddly rubbing her very fit stomach repeatedly), pacing be damned. The scene that sets the stage for the plot is so overlong and un-movie-like it feels like perhaps you sat on the remote and were watching some unconnected sitcom. Eventually it finds its footing and sticks to the storyline, but by that point, there's not a lot of story left, and you sort of know what's coming.
Though the structure could use work, and the dependence on potty humor is off-putting, bad acting is the film's mortal sin. Larson, who comes off a bit like an Adam Pally-lite, is easily the best thing the film has going for it, with Interdonato's aggressively bro-tastic pal being next in line, but most of the rest of the performances are either so over-the-top the just don't work, like the duo's two guido rivals, or just plain awkward, like Christina Pazcoquin's hot-girl-inexplicably-attracted-to our-leading-schlub. Her delivery is so off that when you realize she isn't getting naked, you wonder why she's here. That may also be the point where you wonder why you're here too.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 track is rather solid, with nice separation between the actors' dialogue, the very active background sound and the aggressive soundtrack and score. There's nothing dynamic about the mix, but it all sounds good.
