In this film, the fifth addition to the “Child’s Play” series of films, we find the infamous killer dolls (Chucky and his wife, Tiffany) in Hollywood. Not only is the location different, but there is a new addition to the Ray family – Glen. Some time between “Bride of Chucky” and this film, Tiffany had a baby that she did not know about. It is undecided as to whether it is a boy or a girl, as it does not have any private parts. Being a ventriloquist dummy, owned by a bastard in England, it hopes that by finding its parents, it will be able to find out what its true gender is. When the doll child ends up finding his parents, Chucky and Tiffany, by seeing them on Entertainment Tonight, and noticing that they have the same “Made in Japan” mark that he/she has, it decides to fly to Hollywood. This not only brings a great change to both Chucky and Tiffany’s lives, but it also throws a wrench into their lifestyle of killing. That is due to the fact that their child, later named “Glen,” does not want to be a killer, and that ends up forcing Tiffany to seriously consider quitting the sinful hobby. Chucky, however, refuses to give up his favourite pastime, attempting to get Glen to join in on his murderous activities. Of course, this has both its pros and cons and Jennifer Tilly and Red Man end up getting mixed up in the hilarious mayhem that follows.
Going into this movie, I was told not to expect anything amazing, but that I would definitely be entertained. That was exactly what I got out of this interesting, provocative, and hilarious film – an hour and a half of entertainment. The second time that I watched it, my friend and I noticed that the film was incredibly well-shot, with a lot of good shots used. This movie was also surprisingly well-written, especially for a horror movie – I ended up getting several good laughs out of this film. Also, anyone who has seen any of the previous films in this series, has to know that the acting is never top-notch, and that trend definitely continues in this film, as the actors tend to have some good moments and some not so good moments.
Overall, this is a movie that I would recommend as a rental and not as a blind buy. It is something that some people will like more than others, and it will depend on how much you like dark and disgusting humor. It is definitely not for everyone, but any horror fan should enjoy it. It is cheesy, but in a good and hilarious way – in the way that one would expect a horror comedy film to be. There are a lot of sperm jokes, unique deaths, and hilarious moments, which should please any horror fan. However, it is not something that is meant to be taken seriously as an amazing dramatic film – it was made to allow its viewers to sit down and enjoy themselves for an hour and a half. Do not go into this thinking that it will be an amazing movie, or you will be disappointed; go into your viewing of this movie, expecting an average film that you will get a lot of enjoyment out of. That’s what I did and it worked out quite well.
