Rental Rehab is a refuge for those who have grown weary of friends and professional critics who pester them with recommendations for “fantastic,” “clever” and “well done” films. At Rental Rehab, you’ll find sanctuary from the scourge of cohesive plot progression, character development, continuity, sensible dialogue, accurate costuming, sufficient acting and competent editing.
Rental Rehab is a place where bad movies can live in peace and harmony. Here, we give thoughtful time and attention to the films that others (if there are, in fact, others who have seen the movie) will tell you to “skip.” Or, watch “only on TNT when you’re hung over on a Sunday, or something.” Or, “Avoid at all costs, unless you like the feeling of wanting to claw your eyes out after 20 minutes.”
Our reviewers, Kelli and Tricia, enjoy a broad spectrum of bad movies, and welcome the recommendations of friends, relatives and other film enthusiasts. Films with likable characters and triumphant cinematography need not apply.
