Tonight on BBC 2 !!


I have been waiting for a cinema or DVD release of this film for ages, and only by coincidence did I spot it in the TV Guide only today. It will be shown on BBC 2 tonight (Sunday 23/08) at 1am. 1am in the morning on a Sunday, what are they thinking ? Alex Cox is one of Britain's most talented and interesting film makers, it's outrageous to show his film in the middle of the night!

1am was too good a timeslot for this film. It was absolutely awful. Why BBC2 chose to show such a terrible film I don't know. I want my TV license fee back.

Can anyone tell us how it ended? I fell asleep probably about 20 minutes short. I remember they'd met the petrol station 'boot-licker' guy, then I think the white guy had a nightmare about him or something. Did they reach the scriptwriter and get their 'justice'?

they find the guy selling t-shirts with his own picture on them. the daughter reappears. they confront him. he explains that he had to mistreat the kids in order to get them to scream in order to save the movie. (i summarise.) they then hold a showdown type q&a in the desert, after which fred appears to be struck (dead) by a stray golfball. they bury him, but he climbs out of the grave. then the 3 of them get in to the girl's car and drive. then fred gets a signal on some gizmo of his, explains that he works for some copyright type organisation and was out to bust frobisher for copyright infringement. he is then whisked away by a fleet of helicopters. the movie ends with a spoof 'where are they now' on all of them. i cannot be a**** to write any more. no i didn't make it up.

Was shown once again in the wee small hours. Very glad to have noticed it this time. Enjoyed it a lot and it had some great dialogue, some real laugh out loud moments. Could see it wouldn't be for everyone though. Its on the BBC iPlayer for the next 3 days still.
