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

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).

Pointless .

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

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

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

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

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!

Exciting, must-see entertainment.

There was no story.

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

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

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


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.

Anyway, the film is weak and boring.

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

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.

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.

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


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

The theater was completely empty.

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

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

It's predictable.

It's more enjoyable than this.

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