I figure the title of this film comes from the William Blake poem entitled “Tyger”.

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies

Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?
And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Briana Evigan, plays Kelly Taylor. A 20 something (maybe) that is almost set to go off to college and improve her life after the suicide of her mother. I remember her from S. Darko and Sorority Row. She is epically hot and doesn’t prance around in her underwear half as much as this film needed, but kept my attention.
For the sake of all things “boy shorts”.
Charlie Tahan, plays Tom Taylor, her autistic little brother, whom almost gets them eaten by a tiger quite a few times.
Garret Dillahunt plays the red neck misguided step father murderer, that haplessly wants to start a type of Safari Farm Petting Zoo on the two kids dead mothers property. So of course he buys a rouge zoo tiger, with Kelly’s college tuition. Then boards up all the doors and windows in the house, for the coming hurricane, sends the tiger in there while the kids are sleeping, and boards up the last remaining exit. Bit of an asshole move if you ask me. I remember him from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, other than that I haven’t seen his previous work.
Lastly we have the un-named uncredited tiger. This is about the only thing that really pissed me off. What a beautiful and well trained animal, then BLAM! no credit for you, stupid tiger. They are losing one star just for that bullshit. I just want to hug that damn thing soooo bad, lol.
So, for a super duper Hangover flick. This was perfect. I got to see a super cute tiger, and a really cute girl running around a house from that tiger. Hell at one point I wished I was the tiger, but that might have been the alcohol in my system. The special effects can be wonky and shitty looking, but this is an obvious B flick, so that aside, it was great.

I love tigers and cute girls: ★★★★★★½☆☆☆
