Film Description
My 4 Star Classic Comedy. This has been as high as 9th on the Top 25 and held the #1 Spot on the Top 25 Comedy the day it came out. It currently has over 50 reviews on it with a Cummulative Average of 3.81 at 90 ratings.

It's about a Bunny, a Drunk, and a waitress at a bar, and what happens when they get mixed up in the influence of alcohol.

It's a bizzare Slapstick Comedy that takes a look at whats real, and what is pure fiction, and at the end will leave you guess as tio what actually happened when it was all said and done.

Common Complaints: I actually have 1 star reviews on here, but all of them are STUPID...actually stupid. One person didn't know what the changing of fonts was used for...umm how about to distingish who is talking. and someone else gave it a 1 because they had a bad experience with alcohol, umm...the name of the film is "The Influence of Alcohol", so maybe that should've been your hint not to watch it. Also the editing problems with the text exist online thanks to TMO crapy system they have at the moment.
I'll put this part as nicley as I can though... give this movie any review that you want, but when 4 people out of 90 something reviews give a 1 star, I think I'm gonna side with the the other 86 on the fact that I did a good job, especially when moderators and Top 10 movie rank holders have given 4 or 5 stars too it. So people with 1 stars, it is apparent that I do not suck, but in fact...you do!

Putting the Buzz in bizarre.
This avant surreal slapstick comedy is just what the doctor ordered or would if the doctor were Groucho Marx strung out an assorted illegal substances.
The characters and their sense of non are what first attract your attention in The Influence of Alcohol. They bounce through the oddity of a plot like children jumping from one stone to the next across surging river. Eventually they give up on the stones and attempt to walk on water with mixed results.
The use of different style subtitles is very clever, though the main character's font is too difficult to read at times.
As with all of RSJ62483's films, there are many moments where the shot selection and editing is brilliant and a few moments that make you wonder what you just missed.
Overall a strange trip which might have your scratching your head with your toes. Not for everyone, but the abnormal bits of your psyche will adore it.

The classic work of a slapstick genius. "The Influence Of Alcohol" is a hilarious and slightly insane film.

Were you drunk when you made this movie?

Just saw this at FSN and decided I needed to vote. Very funny movie with an original story. Excellently edited with a humorous script.

The subtitles were distracting and hard to read... perhaps you could use a more subtle difference between them to distinguish the person speaking. Also, I felt the movie was too long for the plot and content. Maybe if there was more action, rather than dead scenes...

Yea man, there's no question you got some funny stuff, but in order for your movies to be top notch you're gonna need some voice acting

I really enjoyed it, first of all i thought it might be one of those common comedies where people just use the funniest looking suits for the actors, and the story line means nout. But... i was impressed because you didn't do that with the bunny, he was geniunly funny. Good going. Check out my movie too, thanks.

Alright, make sure to turn off mumbling next time. And there were SOME funny moments, but nothing that really made me laugh out loud. Sorry for giving it a 3 star rating, but I'm just trying to be honest.

Please, review my movie with an honest rating :)

Very silly and funny. The whole bunny thing due to the drunkness was a nice touch. I also love the little fight thing at the end, nicely done.

- moondrgn

I'm sorry to say it, but I don't get it. Aside from using premade slapstick scenes, what about the whole thing was supposed to be funny? A big bunny that serves drinks and beats up women? I'll give you a star for the effort, but it certainly looks like this is a test movie just thrown together as an experiment, and not a real concerted effort to make a coherent movie with a plot.

Thought that was good and could become a series. Odd ending (did he just imagine it all?) The font is too hard to read-i had to pause is quite often to understand it

Not bad! Didnt make much sense though. Reminded me of Donnie Darko and Harvey (old jimmy stewart movie).

That was a very odd, yet entertaining film. Subtitles went a bit too fast though, but otherwise nice job.

Lovely; I like how the bunny works as his conscience, it's a nice touch. 4 stars.

The music should be more various.

Fun at the local bar.

Story....5 N/A
Editing..5 Excellent
Voices...3 No voice acting..But only missed a little...soft hit.
Sounds...5
Lean.....4 It'll make you laugh and has a well done bar fight.

Final rating...4.4 Voice acting would have made this a great film.

2 Stars. Kinda long winded and I was getting kinda tired of the repetetiveness. I would like to see a lot more voice acting. Heck I don't even have a microphone I use heaphones plugged into the mic jack.

Posted on November 16, 2005
- KingDavid73

funny. Get a mic a.s.a.p. its really better w/ voice acting...but if you need subtitles, make sure you can read em, the main character's font was kinda hard to read somtimes. but, it was pretty good

Posted on November 16, 2005
- mlmcmull

That was pretty cool. The music got a little repetitive, but other than that is was solid and funny in a different way from most of the stuff people toss up on the Studios.

I liked it!

Great concept but missing something in the story, left a lot unanswered. Was a little confusing towards end. Is barmaid drunk too? maybe she sees a man not a bunny? But, bunny says he is a bunny - at that point didn't seem to be a story anymore. It just became a drunk guy talking to a giant bunny in some alternate reality where that is possible..

This is just a random sequence of bar comedy moments arbitrarily spliced together with some irrelevant dialogue. The only remotely funny part was the "I thought for a moment I was sober" line at the beginning when he saw the bunny.

Pretty funny, and a very good ending - but highly random, and it's spelled "you're"! Nonetheless excellent work.

If you'd liek to rate my effort - http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/3029 - I'd appreciate it.

Posted on November 13, 2005
- JAMES009

That was a great comedy!
Good:
- Funny as cheese
- Dialogue was awsome (i liked the font work)
- Great fight scene
- Good, flowable plot

Bad:
- Sadly, no voiceovers (would have made it perfect)
- There isn't a sequal or something ...
- (space filler, nothing else to say)

Well ... 5/5 stars!

I didn't think I'd be giving such a high score to a movie with subtitles anymore, but some of those sight gags were pretty funny in the way you used them. Plus it helps that the movie overall is very nicely done.
