WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A down on his luck entrepreneur lies on a credit card application and through a series of errors, gets approved for credit despite his poor credit score. He decides to form a women’s hockey league with his new found cash. Everything is going fine until the Feds discover his little pyramid scheme.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
I still find it incredibly sad that the National Lampoon name is being put in front of buckets of crap like PUCKED when they used to be responsible for movies like VACATION and ANIMAL HOUSE. Watching this film and others like it, is a very difficult task and anyone who can sit all the way through it should be commended for their pain tolerance.

There’s really nothing nice to say about this movie. It has just about every flaw a movie can have. There are a couple of things that B-movies seem to screw up repeatedly. First, they always make you think there’s going to be some good T&A, but there rarely is. I don’t get that. Everyone involved knows the movie stinks, you might as well throw in some hot naked girls to liven things up. Second, these kind of comedies are never funny and then they make matters worse by trying to give a serious undertone. Watching them try to make this movie a poignant look at the American credit card system is kind of funny. It’s like watching a puppy try to climb some stairs. It’s cute and funny, but at the same time kind of sad.

One of the things I did find funny about the film was Estella Warren. Not because she was supposed to be funny, but because she’s been reduced to this after her turn in PLANET OF THE APES. She wasn’t exactly a scene stealer in that, but at the time I expected more from her. I’m not sure what happened to her, but it might have something to do with her shoulders. She looks like she could do more push-ups than your average Navy seal.
THE EXTRAS
Dirty Old Man (5:14): This is about five minutes of a guy going around and asking girls to take their clothes off. I think there might have been some interviews in there. This is what the movie needed, and instead they cram it into a five minute featurette.

PooNanny (3:51): As if the movie itself wasn’t offensive enough to women, they have to go and do a featurette like this. This is very similar to the previous featurette, except this time they say the word “poonanny” over and over while doing things with bananas.

There are also some Previews.
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I love some of the 80’s hits of Bon Jovi, but that was 20 years ago…and music. Don’t let your love of “Living on a Prayer” persuade you to rent this. You will be sorely disappointed.
