So. Here, in a nutshell, is what you need to know about ThanksKilling.
- Literally the very first onscreen image in the movie is a boob. Not a topless woman, just a full screen boob. When the camera pulls out, it is revealed that the boob belongs to a topless pilgrim lady. Also, four of the first five lines of this movie contain at least one of the following words: tits, titties, boobs, bitch.
- The movie is about a turkey who kills people every 500 years, because of an Indian curse.
- The movie ends with the words "To be continued... IN SPACE!"
That said, I also have to admit that I actually enjoyed watching this movie. Part of that is because it was mercifully short, which was a treat this late in the month. But also, it just doesn't pretend to be anything at all other than what it is, which is ludicrously moronic fluff. It's got a ton of groan-inducing turkey puns and jokes ("You just got stuffed!", "I suspect fowl play!", "Gobble gobble, motherfucker!"), it's got boobies, and it's got a musical number about best friends.
How to rate this? I did enjoy it. I also fully recognize that it's just not a good movie at all. I'm going to give it two roast turkeys out of five, but with the qualifier that you may actually have fun watching it under the right circumstances.
