All is not fun and games for this father vacationing in the happiest place on earth. A satire that explored parenthood and corporate America. Apparently filmed without Disney's permission.

I think you have to question the value of the 'Disney Experience' to appreciate the film. For many people, it is such a treasured cultural icon of modern middle-class values that this movie would seem heretic. Not for the car chase/gun play crowd. I thoroughly enjoy indie productions like these.

A rambling, incoherent mess with undertones of lingering paedophilia.

The fact that it was filmed guerrilla-style within Disneyland is an admirable gimmick but the novelty wears off in the face of the creepy, stumbling plot.

i do agree that the fact it was filmed with out Disney's consent is pretty amazing. That being said... this movie is weird... weird, weirdy, mcweirdyton, weird. I am a fan of the twilight zone, but i didn't get that out of it at all. i couldn't finish it, so perhaps in the end it is worth it. It has the same sort of bizarre feel as Eraserhead, but is now where near as good. Disney seems surreal enough to those of us who have never been. But this... this is just bizarre.

A bad acid trip at Disneyland. A guerrilla film showing a surreal vision from a man seemingly on a bad acid trip at Disneyland. It seems like a great episode from the Twilight Zone. i liked the emotions of the father on his own emotional roller coaster. Very well filmed considering it was shot without permission. A side bonus is I have never been to a Disney theme park, and now have a good idea of what I missed (not much :) )
