Bummer (1973)

Director: William Allen Castleman

Starring: Kipp Whitman, Dennis Burkley, Connie Strickland

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Group and Groupies ... Sometimes ... It's a Groove ... and Sometimes It's a ... Bummer

Plot: Members of a rock band get a little carried away with their partying lifestyle.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? Kill me.

This movie was aptly named. I'm not sure 3/10 isn't too good of a score. It's 85 minutes of 'yawn' and 5 minutes of 'hey, that's cool'. That'd be the last 5 minutes. Woof. This is bad. The base player, Butts, rapes women and eventually kills one of his bandmate's groupie girlfriends. That's the story. There's more action in the last 5 minutes than the previous 85. Seriously, rent this disc for JOHNNY FIRECLOUD (a pretty good movie considering) and then the last 5 minutes of this one. Don't forget to watch all of the awesome trailers and shorts on the disc put out by Something Weird Video. I love that company!

BUMMER is about as exciting and original as the band's name - The Group. Wow. They spent way too much time trying to come up with an exciting name. Oh, and the music they play is horrendous. It's like Neil Diamond and Steely Dan had a love child, that child shit in its diaper and that shit formed a band called The Group. That's how bad it is. There's plenty of nudity. It helped but it wasn't nearly enough to save this. Skip it and skip it HARD!
