If you guys are talking about the chick who played penel-ope, she was all ribs and bad implants. I kinda threw up in my mouth a little when she took her shirt off.

No Trigger. I'm not talking about Penel-ope (who was played by Cabin Fever's Jordan Ladd), I'm talking about Elena Lyons.

Spoiler:
Elena Lyons is the first female to appear in the film, the one with the brown hair. She's the one going down on the pot head before he's killed, then the blonde hair girl is killed, and then she is killed... cue opening title.


BTW, after much thought, I think the film's "real life depection of the game Pac-Man" is one of the most brilliant things I have ever seen in a major motion picture.

I couldn't agree with you more. Amazing.

I don't understand how you guys know the names of all these obscure girls. Does this have something to do with Maxim or Stuff or Spank or whatever?

Anyway - I totally agree about the Pac Man... that was quite brilliant.

When I was a pathetic little thirteen year old, everyday at 5:30pm, I would watch USA High on USA Network and Elena Lyons was a cast member on it. The show was a pathetic Saved by the Bell rip-off, but I had nothing better to do.

Five years later, how I still remember her name, is pretty much beyond me.

I think I've seen USA High a few times, but I wouldn't be able to point out someone who was in it let alone remember their name.

Not nearly as bad as I was expecting. The jokes did seem to die off after a while, and it tried to turn into a serious slasher flick.

Liked the gratuitous nudity

I remember her from that show too. Saved by the Bell ripoffs rule.

Wasn't there a saved by the bell ripoff called California Dreamin or something where the kids were in a band together and one of the kids was clearly 35 years old and wore a leather jacket and acted all tuff?

Trigger, yes there was a California Dreams. And I think Kelly Packard was in it. Edit to add - just checked and she was. I'm going back to my hole now.

Sadly, I could probably point out everyone in the main cast except the Lead Male Heartthrob, who's kind of indistinguishable from the Lead Male Heartthrob in all those dozens of other Peter Engel series. Kristen Miller should be pretty easy to spot -- she's gone on to do a bunch of stuff. Angela Visser was once Miss Universe, and she also co-starred in my second favorite Killer Tomatoes flick, Killer Tomatoes Eat France.

Obviously. It looked as if they implanted two tennis balls in there.

sheesh, how wrong can you be? The fruit was bonus points that showed up randomly. the blinking slightly bigger dots are what let you eat ghost. In the case of the real life game, the drinking equaled the blinking dots. duh!

Reasons why the game of Pac-Man was brilliantly portrayed in Club Dread:

1. A hedge maze was used.
2. Drinking was involved for the bigger "yellow" dots in able to "eat" the "Ghosts."
3. When said person got to drink, the "Ghosts" went from clothed to being in bikinis.
4. Fruit would come in and out of the maze.
5. The intimate relationship between the Pretzel and Watermelon.
6. The use of actual Pac-Man music.
7. The fact that Broken Lizard actually came up with a "real-life" game of Pac-Man to play at an island resort is genius.

So is it worth seeing the film just to see this live-action Pac-Man game?

Are there more positives than negatives to this film?

It's a "B" movie in the best possible way:
boobs, blood and blunts.


And the PacMan bit is very funny.

I was shocked at how unfunny this movie was. I LOVED Super Troopers... saw it on opening day and went back a few times...but most of this film just fell flat. Lars and Juan were hilarious, but some of the other characters were just flat.

There are about 5 or 6 good solid laughs...stuff that I would probably even classify as Brilliant...but seeing as ST had the same in the first 10 MINUTES ALONE... I certainly wouldn't call that a recommendation. I hope the next Broken Lizard film can be a bit more even...

I thought the same thing as you said, except for the ST comments. I did not like it at all, meanwhile my roomie is a huge fan of the film.

don't even bother paying matinee price for this. It's perfect cable fodder.

wow, what an insanely bad movie, a comedy that isn't funny and a horror film that is lame. This movie makes Troma's film look like works of art. Sans the ending, which is a smidgen funny
Spoiler:
the killer's multiple dying sequences
there was nothing I found remotely unique. The humour was bland and pathetic- I chuckled only once. "Super Troopers" was funny, this isn't.

To each his own I guess, cuz the part you found to be a smidgen funny was the part I found was the most tired and cliche and obvious joke. I thought there was enough there in this film to warrant a viewing, but it's not in any way up to par with ST. I'm gonna pick up the DVD though cuz I have a feeling that it's the type of film that might get funnier upon many repeat viewings.
