Movie Info

A premature crack baby abandoned in an inner city dumpster embarks on a surreal journey through a landscape of urban decay in directors James Bickert and Randy Hills. Left for dead and doomed to die, the helpless child's chances for survival fade with each passing minute. The young infant's will to survive is strong though, and in the following days the struggling child encounters a series of bizarre characters ranging from an adulterous surgeon to a malevolent street pimp and a crack-smoking hooker whose motherly instincts offer a shimmering ray of hope in the child's bleak future.

What a strange an extremely unlikely story, often in very poor taste. It was clearly made on a miniscule budget and it hurts the film. More stupid than it is interesting. The score isn’t too bad. The acting is quite poor though, some do okay, but most do not.

Congratulations, Richard Linklater. Someone made a half-assed homage to your best movie. Unfortunately, it was a horrible, horrible Troma movie. I was really hoping this would be in the 'so-bad-it's-good' category. I had such high hopes, with the title and all. It just wasn't meant to be. Let me put it in perspective: In high school, my friends and I wanted to make a Hobbit parody called The Bobbit. On grocery store stockboy wages, I think we could've pulled off a higher quality production. The sound quality was so horrible that I couldn't understand some of the dialogue even with my headphones cranked to maximum. I upgraded it from a half dot to a full dot simply for the Linklater tribute and the two times I halfway chuckled at it. The best line: "Bring that baby back to me when it's old enough to suck my dick!" -- Sorry, that's the high point. And only because it's said by an effeminate black gangbanger.
