Unsurprisingly some of those 5 star reviews for this movie are from one shot reviews, who apparently joined just to bump up with star rating for this movie.
But don't be fooled. This movie is more horrible than a dog with Aids giving birth to a puppy with cancer. Oh, believe me.
Now the reason this movie appeared on your radar is probably the same reason it appeared on mine, someone you like from something else is in it, be it Kristen Bell or Michael Pena or that one guy from American Pie who isnt as successful as the other 3..... well thats really it. Everyone else you've never seen before and probably won't again. With the exception of that kind of frumpy chick from Heroes who demanded more money so they killed her character off.
I personally checked the movie out because Kristen Bell is in it. Kristen Bell is a great actress, a great actress who needs to fire her movie agent. With the exception of Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Reefer Madness, her movies in general have been stinkers. But regardless of that I own most, if not all, of them. Because of her I own not only a Hallmark movie, but a Lifetime movie as well. However owning 50 pills would be infinitely more embarrassing than owning any movie from a chick network regardless of content.
This movie is like Go, if Go had both its legs broken and skull caved in. Not only slow, so slow in fact I suspect Stephen Hawking could type out the screenplay faster than it takes for the movie to go through it, this movie is also Forrest Gump stupid. I wonder who Sally Fields slept with to get it into production?
I won't mince words, this turdburger belongs in the landfill with all those E.T. Atari cartridges. I have no doubt that everyone involved leaves it off their resume, even those to whom this movie is their only credit. Better to be thought of as a complete novice than being associated with 50 pills. Kristen Bell comes through unscathed, she's not in the movie much, but for everyone else I would find it easier to forgive them for setting babies on fire than being in this movie.
It's no surprise that the magazine that says this movie is "laugh out loud funny" on the cover of the dvd is out of business. And its publisher was busted in a SPAM lawsuit. But, as I suspect, that is the only accolades this movie got it had to use it.
Oh, speaking of the cover the whole "warning you may become addicted to this movie" thing. Don't worry, you are about as likely to get addicted to this movie as you are likely to get addicted to killing yourself. It's an impossibility.
