Exciting, must-see entertainment.

But nevertheless, this film is crude, trashy and pointless.


It's a great way to waste 95 minutes, just as the daily talk show is advertised as "an hour of your life you'll never get back!

Anyway,don't waste a dime on this movie!!!

Lastly, I found Springer's pose as a populist tiresome and unconvincing.

But some people find this crap entertaining, then let them have their fun - even though there aren't many of them (proves the 9 million dollar gross this film made - what a big bomb).

Parts of it are a little funny but this, and some other qualities are just lost in a plotless film that is vulgar rather than interesting and noisy rather than really funny.

When such a piece of crap like this becomes equivalent to being mildly entertaining - then you know...

This is without a doubt, the worst movie I've ever seen.

It's predictable.

The entire group of characters are just boring stereotypes who do just about everything you'd expect them to do.

"Manos: The Hands of Fate") that show more creativity and spirit than this dreary, witless waste of film.

Even if you're a Springer fan, skip this boring, lifeless piece of crap .

This movie has no plot, no laughs, the worst acting and editing I've seen in years, and the tacked-on, phony moralizing Jerry puts on is a travesty.

Oh my god this woman is beautiful, sexy, hot, breathtaking, gorgeous, etc. This was the first movie I saw her in and as soon as it was done I ran out and bought Poison Ivy 3.

And on top of that this is a very boring film

It's a series of behind the scenes fights, arguments, and sex scenes with no real plot.

Just imagine a predictable soap opera transformed into a comic farce.

The theater was completely empty.

It isn't a bad film, it's just that there is a lot in there that is boring.

There was no story.

Anyway, the film is weak and boring.

The only people that would find this movie remotely enjoyable are people that meet the following requirements:a) You have an i.

Pointless .

Since I was over the shock of Jerry Springer's show a long time ago, I had the same reaction I had to Andrew Dice Clay's obscene nursery rhymes; not laughter, just yawning.


It's more enjoyable than this.

I was in fact very surprised, it was well worth watching; it was loosely scripted, almost like an ensemble piece of film.
