After reporting (or stealing the report off another website) about the tragic failure of the holiday epic, "Delgo", I felt like I owed it to myself to watch this trainwreck myself. Or in the immortal words of one Mike Awesome: this was one party, I was NOT gonna miss!
Luckily, fellow HCMer Erik was also ready to party with Delgo. Here are the photos that document our journey (which was unfortunately on par with the level of excitement experienced in Delgo).
Here's the movie poster. Innocent enough. That's Delgo in the middle voiced by wrestling writer Freddie Prinze, Jr., with his love interest Jennifer Love Hewett on his right. Maybe they were banking on the I Know What You Did Last Summer fanbase to pack the theaters as a chance to see a reunion of sorts. I don't know. Oh, and that other character is Delgo's gay friend Filho, voiced by Chris Kattan. Quite a stretch.
The stage was set for movie magic! And at least one patron was pretty jazzed to say the least!
Maximum Theater Occupancy
Actual Theater Occupancy. (seriously).
Look, I'll spare you any plot details, but just think Star Wars meets Lord of The Rings meets The Snorks meets Fecal Matter.
In actuality, the movie isn't THAT bad. It just isn't anywhere near good. I even chuckled two or three times. I'm sure there are kids out there who would enjoy this. Stupid kids. Looks like a marketing budget gone wrong (or missing).
Sorry, Delgo. At least you've been immortalized on HenryCottosMustache.com
So ya got that going for you... which is nice.
Happy Holidays everyone... even you Delgo.
