I guess we can all thank Tarantino and Rodriguez for reminding us all of the poorly-made, overly graphic flicks of yesteryear. Now, I kinda wish we could just forget 'em all again. The sentiment is no longer novel. It has worn out its welcome. I only say this because I had to force myself to sit through another wannabee "grindhouse faker" in TICKED-OFF TRANNIES (at least the title is funny).
Hey, you ever heard of the ol' missing reel gag? You haven't, right? Right?! I know, WRONG! Well, the makers of TICKED-OFF don't seem to care and freely use the gag to zero effect. How about intentionally making the flick's picture look grainy? You've seen that already too?! Wow, I can't believe director, Israel Luna didn't realize that. Let's face it, my friends, this isn't the kind of movie you'd watch for any form of redeeming value or cutting-edge creativity. Much like its cast, the proceedings are pure trash. If you're ever in the mood for that, then go ahead and try on these TRANNIES.
This just wasn't my type of movie or my type of characters. None of the acting even comes close to top notch, although I guess everyone is clearly in on the lame joke. At least some of the trannies had some good comedic timing. I suppose you'd definitely need a VERY good sense of humor in order to sustain being involved in this kind of production. Honestly, I think the only kind of people that would be into this movie are real-life trannies and cross-dressers. At least they would probably be able to relate to the titular folks.
