User Review

Banking on half clothed women to carry a film

Rating: 3/10


The creators of this film seemed to believe that the heavy sexual
undertones and half clothed women would carry this film. They were
mistaken.

The movie begins with Christian Slater, a reporter stuck scrounging for
a story, coming across a journal of Oscar Nunez (Oscar from The
Office). Oscar describes a village that had all of it's men carried
away to fight in a war which left all of the women to fend for
themselves. Considering many of them can't read or write, or even
change a light bulb, this would be no easy task. Eva Longoria declares
herself mayor and tries to get everyone to work together to build the
Utopian town of women.

From the beginning this movie was hard to sit through. It became
obvious very early on that the movie would not be carried on it's own
but rather gambled on the fact that the hope of seeing girl on girl
action would keep the viewer in their place. I cringed at the thought
that Christian Slater, Oscar Nunez, and Eva Longoria actually read this
script and went on board to make this ridiculous movie.

The acting and storyline were bad and the only thing I came away with
is wishing I could have that part of my life back. I would have rather
gotten the laundry caught up.
