"A Talking Cat!?!" was just added to Netflix and it seems that it went straight there as it is dated 2013. Maybe the first straight-to-streaming-video movie ever (BTW I could not find this on the Wiki or IMDb)? Even though this might be made for a family audenice, the acting and dialouge remined me of "Troll 2." I have not seen "Mac & I", but from what I heard from the podcast, this might be just as bad. Oh, I forget to mention that the cat (a self-aclaimed human whisper) is voiced by Eric Roberts doing his best Garfield impression after an all-night bender. See it before it becomes the next cult film.
Nonsensical high concept plot ("killer" ambulance drives around snatching up diabetics), ludicrously entertaining dialogue (Red Buttons in particular has some amazing lines), bizarre characterisation (if James Earl Jones ain't chewin' gum he chewin' scenery); basically all the things you can expect from Cohen, cranked up to 11. Meanwhile I'm just shaking my head in disbelief, giddy as a motherfucker. At one point Eric Roberts (at the height of his mullet game) is being stared down by a couple of punks and goes "What a shitty time to get mugged." so my girlfriend goes "Why is this happening?" and I go "I DON'T KNOW!" with a huge smile on my face. That about sums up The Ambulance. The entire thing's on Youtube as well:
Saw this years and years ago, and recently re-watched it. It's about an ex-marine (Eric Roberts) sent to Australia by the Coca-Cola company to convince a small town soda bottler to sell his business to Coke. The director, I believe, did only gay porn for a long time, then made this. The end alone gets it in the HDTGM? pantheon, perhaps as the grandpappy of all WTF? movies I've ever seen, including all of Stuart Gordon's and David Lynch's films combined.
