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

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.

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.

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).

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.

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

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!

There was no story.

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

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

Anyway, the film is weak and boring.

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

The theater was completely empty.

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.


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

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

And on top of that this is a very boring film

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

Pointless .

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

It's predictable.

Exciting, must-see entertainment.

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

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

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.
