I saw this with the WORST COMMENTARY OF ALL TIME playing in the background, which muffled a lot of the dialogue. While I imagine being able to hear the characters speak is every bit as confounding, seeing the absurd shit on the screen happen with no dialogue to guide me toward meaning elevated this into the realm of transcendent surrealism. I went into this movie an ordinary man; I left it as a Lama of Bad Taste.
My mother and father had 6 babies> not sure I get the whole "3 kids= good; 4 kids= a mess" theory. That's a tad prejudiced against large families, I think. I've 5 brothers & sisters: we never were a burden to our parents. Personally?The 80s ARE New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" (♡) rather than all the other lame sappy-corny-cheesy 80's bands on the soundtrack. Steve Buscemi saying 'don't believe the hype' killed me
"You'd think a movie that includes a scene where Taylor Lautner's crotch is eaten by a giant deer couldn't be all bad. But you'd be wrong." -- Bilge Ebiri, Vulture. I give it a bonus half star because they looked like they had fun making it, proving that one man's trash is another's treasure. 1.5 stars
This is one of those kinds of films that is enjoyable to watch if there's nothing else on TV, or on demand. I did find the film's brand of comedy laughable, including a few laugh-out-loud moments (for those who have seen it, the scene in Kmart with the exploding raft). Definitely not a brilliant or auteur-connoisseur picture by any means, but if you like funny films without a great message, this is the one for you.
