WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE...(1991)
As with most direct-to-video movies, and also as with most things from the 1990's, this movie is a pile of crap and waste of time. What you get is a really stupid anthology movie version of THE TWILIGHT ZONE minus any kind of logical sense to anything that happens. In the world of this movie riding around on a bus causes strange things to happen to you. One guy gets a mold-man growing in his fridge, one lady gets a new boyfriend who turns out to be a robot and in the worst story some jackass winds up with a car that he can talk to. There's no clever twist-endings or anything, all this stuff is just put right out there from the beginning of the stories and I guess it's supposed to be interesting in some way. Stuff like this makes me wish this decade never existed. The only thing even slightly interesting about this is it's narrated by Mr. Roper from THREE'S COMPANY and I hope he got payed well for being involved in this snoozefest.
I can't imagine this DVD has been sold anywhere ever for more than $1:
