You're probably one of the only people recommending it. When I was outside the theater waiting for my friends to show up, I watched in amusement as several people rushed out of the theater demanding their money back while loudly proclaiming it was The Worst Movie ever, and how can the theater justify showing such crap, etc. etc...
In spite of the manager coming out and telling potential ticket buyers not to see the movie because he CANNOT give refunds, I decided to go ahead with my plan to heckle this movie when my friends arrived.
While watching the movie, I developed a case of whiplash from trying to watch a movie shot with a camera on a broken tripod. It was like being in Adam West Batman Series hell because of all the camera angles. And watching the movie jump from scene to scene was like watching an ADD child drawing on a Magnadoodle, what with the scene wipes. Just about the only thing missing in this movie were the sound effect words splashed on the screen during fights.
I do have to admit I have a favorite line from the movie: "We could take a chance and FART!" I swear this is what Barry Pepper said because I'm not the only one to make the comment in that theater.
Honestly, Ed Wood could have written a more coherent and intelligent film. The film couldn't have been any worse if the director was Alan Smithee and Kyle MacLachlan had been in it (a kiss of death if ever there was one). The plot holes were big enough to haul a planet through, and leaving your brain at the door wasn't enough to enjoy this movie. A lobotomy would _almost_ help. I kind of felt like I had been given a lobotomy by the end of BE.
I don't remember feeling physically ill after seeing a movie before.
