Looking for a little Bella/Edward/Jacob parody action? Read on as we examine the new to DVD "Twilight" spoof "Breaking Wind" out this week from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Follow the scent below!
Title: "Breaking Wind"
Cast: Heather Ann Davis, Eric Callero, Frank Pacheco
Director: Craig Moss
Runtime: 82 minutes
Release Company: Lionsgate Home Entertainment
The Flick: You know when you see a DVD box and you think ‘this one is gonna be bad’? "Breaking Wind" exceeds all those expectations and provides one of the most lame, humorless and downright gross excuses for a comedy this side of "Jack and Jill." Don't get me wrong, I dig a little disgusting in my comedy (I grew up on John Waters!), but this one is so vile that I almost heaved the popcorn I was munching. (How many times can Jacob Frank Pacheco make fart jokes...that aren’t funny?!) Bad timing (the set ups seem to miss a beat consistently!), horrible sight gags (the little version of Edward is just sad!) and even scenes that are way too close in drama to the actual "Twilight" films (but covered in a distinctive B-cheese layer thanks to "Twilight" obsessed director Craig Moss!) makes for one mess of a flick.
Best Feature: 'The Heartwarming Embrace of Jacob and Edward' shows outtakes of the poor male leads forced to kiss over and over and over...(to bad it wasn’t funny!)
Best Hidden Gem: The only saving grace in this fart fest is the wasted Danny Trejo who slings one-liners like he does machetes – like a pro!
Worth the Moola: Even if you’re just craving some "Twilight" action, I say let this one fizzle out like a bad fart and disappear forever.
