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

It's predictable.

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

The theater was completely empty.

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

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

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.

There was no story.

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

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

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

Anyway, the film is weak and boring.

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

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

Exciting, must-see entertainment.

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

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.

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!

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


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


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 .

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

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

It's more enjoyable than this.
