Monster Island (2004)

Okay, first of all, let me just tell you that this movie sucked.

It should be avoided at all costs.

It was called "Monster Island" and I couldn't watch more than about half -- even WITH the giant bugs.

The plot consisted of a bunch of kids on a tropical island for a weekend with... Carmen Electra... (they won a contest).

Turns out the island was an atomic research center way back when, and there's a bunch of REALLY BIG insects wandering around. And a Gill-Man or two.

So Carmen gets kidnapped by a giant flying ant, which takes her to it's nest so she can (gulp) ...sing... to the ant-enslaved natives there to keep them happy. Yeah.

A few of the kids go off to rescue her and various shenanigans ensue.

The bugs were done with stop-motion animation and not too badly, but the plot and acting were done using real live people -- and quite badly, I fear. I really did turn it off halfway through.

Which is saying something, because I've sat through movies like "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" and "Cat-Women of the Moon" (though I'm not proud of it).

In it's defense, the movie was obviously made for laughs and didn't take itself seriously at all. Maybe I just wasn't in a laugh-ey mood that night.

But I'd only give this
