  • Summary: Godspeed, and welcome to Americatown, home to Head Mountain, Letter Sign on the Hill, and Giant Gap in Earth. Celebrated for locally made aboveground cars, an almost infinite variety of breakfast cereals and unbridled, bald-faced greatness, this little burg of exactly 1,000 citizens is theGodspeed, and welcome to Americatown, home to Head Mountain, Letter Sign on the Hill, and Giant Gap in Earth. Celebrated for locally made aboveground cars, an almost infinite variety of breakfast cereals and unbridled, bald-faced greatness, this little burg of exactly 1,000 citizens is the only place worthy of you. That is, until a single spilled cup of coffee sets off a cataclysmic chain of events destined to test the town's gumption. Can the Americatonians pull together and weather the madness, or are they fated to crumble like so many tiny empires before it? (Mobius Films) Expand

    This bizarre sort-of satire featuring insane characters doing incomprehensible things might be forgivable if it were even mildly amusing. It's not.

    Strictly for fans of free-form, DIY hit-or-miss humor (and those who prefer a miss to a hit), pic complacently parades its alienated amateurism in the mistaken belief that half a gag is better than none.
