Bunny and the Bull

Bunny and the Bull

Director: Paul King
Writer: Paul King
Starring: Edward Hogg, Simon Farnaby, Veronica Echegui
Review By: Scotty

Stephen(Edward Hogg) has agoraphobia and will not leave his flat where everything is labeled and controlled. Due to not being able to leave his apartment the viewer goes on a journey through his memories and mementos  of a trip from years before, sounds interesting, right?

No, this movie is Terrible, I mean terrible.  The plot was bad, the characters were bad.  I thought maybe this may be a creative movie with smart dialogue but it was just plain bad.  Do not see it, not even for free on Netflix.  This is my first no guys film and hopefully my last.

Review By: Klash

Stephen who suffers from agoraphobia and never steps foot outside his home spends his time organizing items in perfectly labeled boxes and containers which he stacks about his home. One night after ordering out for dinner Stephen begins to have flashbacks of a trip he and his friend Bunny took across Europe. Visiting various museums the journey is rather dull until the Steve and Bunny take on a passenger they meet in Poland, a waitress named Eloise. What follows as the three companions try to get back to Spain in time for a fiesta is a bizarre journey which involves a stuffed bear, drinking dogs milk and a matador.

This film was difficult to sit through due to a lack of interest in anything that happened in the entire hour and forty minutes it took to view. The story was very boring and predictable while the characters especially Stephen were either annoying or forgettable. It was a challenge to not just turn this off and go do something else. I was hoping there would possibly be a few more cameos from some of the supporting actors, just to maybe make it a bit more tolerable. Unfortunately that didn’t happen.

Review By: Griff

Edward Hogg plays Stephen, an agoraphobic, schizophrenic with OCD. He spends his time cataloging his urine and doing crossword puzzles in his apartment. When his stash of food goes bad on him, he is forced to order take out from the local Captain Crab.

When the food arrives it sparks memories of a trip through Europe that he took over a year ago with his friend Bunny (Simon Farnaby), an extroverted drunk with a penchant for gambling. Through flashbacks sparked by various items around Stephen’s house we relive the trip in broken pieces through Stephen’s imagination.

While they are traveling in Poland the duo meet up with Elosia (Veronica Echegui) and agree to give her a ride back to Spain so she can attend a festival there. Hilarity ensues as the group sets off and an adventure through Europe that leads to sex and drinking dog milk straight from the tit.

This movie was goddamn awful. I am not sure I have the words to describe to you how much I hated this pseudo-intellectual, self indulgent piece of crap but I am going to do my best.

First, the acting was atrocious. I think they picked these people up off the street and asked them to be in a movie. Next, the plot is so boring and predictable that it took me four days to watch this film. I literally couldn’t get through more then 30 minutes of the film without falling asleep from the ennui. Last but not least, the set designs. I assume that they were hoping we would think they were being clever and original when in fact, anyone who has seen a considerable amount of movies would recognize that all they did was steal from other, much better films. (City of Lost Children and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari for example)

I was seriously considering writing my review with just the words “F- this movie” and leaving it at that. I watched this movie for free and still wanted my money back. I would like to slap the directors mother. I hated it that much. Just awful. I wish I could give it negative guys but, the best I can do is no guys so… NO GUYS FROM ME!
