Tagline: She will kick ass with her big ass

Plot: It's 1940 and the German army is oozing their ickiness across the European continent, indiscriminately slaughtering thousands. On the Eastern Front, a motley group of Resistance Fighters, led by Nathaniel (Fletcher) and "Vadge" (Belli), struggle valiantly against the Nazi scourge. The German army, headed by the Commandant (Paré), shadow puppet master, a mad, showtunes-singing Doctor (Howard), and the newly-addicted-to-blood Lieutenant (Mennekes), threatens to eradicate the Resistance. But coming to the rescue is Blubberella. Half vampire, half woman, and all trouble, Blubberella loves nothing better than killing Nazis and a substantial turkey on rye. She has moved through the centuries destroying nasties and their like while perfecting the ultimate cotton candy recipe. Blubberella and the Commandant face each other in a rail car and after a unseemly exchange of bodily fluids, the Commandant becomes infected by Blubberella and, unknown to her, begins his transformation into a powerful day-walking vampire. Now Blubberella faces her greatest foe in her valiant struggle against tyranny and creatively used kitchen implements - a legion of undead Nazi soldiers and their ruthless leaders. Along the way she'll lock horns with her oppressive mama, cross-dressing resistance fighters, dodgy S&M games, and even Hitler and his mad boardgame-playing skills. Blubberella. She's coming big time.

My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again? Maybe.

There were times when I laughed out loud and HARD.  There's some incredibly funny shit in this flick.  If I should watch this again it's because of Liday Hollister (Blubberella) AND William Belli (Vadge).  They are fucking hilarious and make this movie something to see.  Hollister is a riot.  She's got a great sense of humor and comic timing.  She must have been having a ball because it sure felt like it.

"Ooh, cookies."  Ahahahahahaha. 

The IMDb rating is 2.9 which almost half the voters rated it a 1/10.  This is a fine example of how haters are going to jump on Uwe Boll for everything he does regardless of how good or bad it is and regardless of whether or not they've actually seen the film.  Don't let someone's reputation keep you from giving something a chance.  This movie is often screamingly funny. It's also pretty bad and boring at times but the bigger laughs make up for it.  It's got nudity, and lots of un-PC gags (the bit with the Jews on the train was in such bad taste but it was so funny that I couldn't help myself).  I'm really surprised how far over the line Boll went.  Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't but if you dig some wicked funny shit when it does, check it out.
