We create unique gifts for bunny lovers who are bunny whipped! It's an anticlimax to a movie that wasn't really leading to anything anyway. None of it is ever convincing as parody, and the jokes are wilted at best. . But when Bob finds out that his prime suspect in the murder has kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, he must transform into the superhero he really is. It's a plotless, plodding comedy made on the cheap, with most of its scenes coming off like long-winded ad-libs. The same previews also play as the disc loads; you can skip past them if you choose.
News of his exploits reaches his high school sweetheart Joey Lauren Adams , now an animal rights activist who asks her old flame to help save some local rabbits. Worse, anything we can come up with is far funnier than what's actually churned out. It's two very different, very bad movies inexplicably crammed into one. His escapades lead him to his high-school girlfriend Anne, now an animal-rights crusader. Oh, but this would be a dreary comedy even with all its logic intact. Many scenes are filmed on awkwardly underlit sets, the hopes being we won't realize, say, it's not really a bar, but somebody's garage. The final act tries to tie everything together by having Kenny Kent kidnap Bob's ex-girlfriend, although there's absolutely nothing in this ending that pays off.
Meanwhile, an Eminem-style white rapper is gunned down during a concert, and the main suspect is Rick James look-alike Kenny Kent Laz Alonso. That one is a must see. So you see where I'm going with this? If you're wondering, the plot is about a loser who uses his amazing powers of absolutely-nothing to thwart crime. It's one of those films where the plot isn't particularly clever or engaging, but the individual moments of comedy are. We support bunny rescue organizations. Or are you looking for unique gifts for bunny-whipped friends and family? Extras Enjoy, if you can, two commentaries: one in English, with Riera and producer Ty Donaldson; another in Spanish, with Riera and co-producer Julian Sanchez. This is a nice flick with a few priceless moments, a few lame ones, but overall a fun ride.
Traveling in the footsteps of Blankman and Hero at Large , Riera brings us yet another masked crusader sans any superhuman powers. A more even if blander Dolby stereo track is also included. I'm not sure why ThinkFilm would include the second track without subtitles or the first without Spanish subs, come to think of it. Synopsis Neophyte writer-director Rafael Riera helms the rollicking direct-to-video comedy Bunny Whipped. When she asks Bob to help her save rabbits, things start looking up.
A portion of the sales will be donated to bunny rescue groups. Let's start with the rap stuff first. We have everything bunny lovers want! Her scenes, which involve giving generic tidbits of advice on life and love to Bob, seem as if they were filmed in one weekend and then randomly edited into the movie, just to break up the story. When he learns that America's most beloved white rap star has been murdered, he decides to hunt down his killer by becoming. Although at times noticeable, don't let its low budget turn you off. The reasons for her character's existence must have been left on the cutting room floor, if filmed at all.
The bit about the high school sweetheart and the rabbit? Maybe somewhere in that conversation, someone would find the time to explain why so much effort was put into rap parody and animation, and so little into little things like story, character, and point. Now, a vigilante superhero without any real superhero powers, The Whip flashes through the night rescuing those in need. Bob Whipple is a sportswriter who feels his life is going nowhere. By day, he's Bob Whipple Esteban Powell , sportscaster extraordinaire stuck in a dead-end existence; by moonlight, he's The Whip also Powell , a generally helpless superhero nonetheless determined to bring the men to justice who rubbed out a white rap star. Although the plot is a little saggy, there are at least half a dozen scenes that are guaranteed to give you a hearty lol. Sure, the sweetheart hangs around for the rest of the movie, but did we really need any of that rabbit stuff to get her there? Optional Spanish subtitles are included. Do you have a rabbit companion and want to show the world how much you love your bunny or bunnies? Meanwhile, the superhero stuff falls flat, with limp jokes about Bob's tight shorts requiring more padding, Bob being unable to afford the fanciest spy equipment, that sort of thing.
There's no action, no comedy, no romance. After a rambling sequence at an animal shelter, the entire plotline is dropped. Costs are saved by letting several action sequences plus all establishing shots play out via shoddy animation, although this only underlines the cheapness of the rest of the film. Here is a film that wishes to parody comic book movies and rap music while also working its way through a gentle romantic comedy. Here's what we get: Bob Whipple Esteban Powell is a sports writer recently dumped by the girl of his dreams. But then, what does anything have to do with anything? All three angles fail on a grand level, and that's before you factor in the incompetent direction and aggravating performances. .
