Movie Review by Tim
January 28th, 2008

Dissapointing with the level of talent.

Favorite Movie Quote: "You must like getting spanked, Farley. I guess it runs in the family."

Mr. Woodcock looked to be the next big comedy. When you take veterans like Billy Bob Thorton and Susan Sarandon....then add in Stifler otherwise known as
Seann William Scott....you think that it will be hilarious. Even the previews made the film look like it was going to make you fall on the floor laughing.

I cant place what the mistakes were. I know that Thorton and Sarandon's performance were average and Scott's was horrible. They tried to downplay him WAY to much and make him into a total wuss. Hollywood has to realize that its a hard leap for Scott to get away from his Stifler antics and its hard to accept him being a complete opposite.

The movie is worth watching as there is a few REALLY funny parts and the rest is just so average and meager that you probably would not watch it more then one time. I will say that the scene with Ethan Suplee (damn he lost some weight) and the video camera talking about Susan Sarandon's boobs was hysterical. That one scene made it worth watching.

Its a really average movie with just big actors. The director Craig Gillespie has nothing under his belt worth mentioning and looks that if he doesn't go in another direction then his career will be short lived.

S S S S S S SSS S SS S set of 10........

yeah i think this is one of those movies that all the funny parts are played out in the commercials. and even then, it didnt look that funny. but i did expect better from scott & thornton....

yeah, still I thought the funniest part was with that video camera and that was not on the commercial.....the treadmill part when he flew off into the weights was the funniest thing they showed on tv. Still a dissapointment.

but you know, its hollywood. they never really know how to keep things from disappointing us lol :P

Well I think with the success of the straight to video American Pie and National Lampoon films...that they know if they but together a half way funny script with popular actors then the film will make money.......thats the main problem.

good point. but hollywood also isnt one to let stuff rests. once a new type of film is introduced, they run it to death, make tons & tons of unneeded sequels, and we are forced to accept it because there isnt much else good. take for example the "spoof" genre, it started with the scary movies (which we dont need 4 of), then it was followed by date movie, epic movie, meet the spartans (which i do have to admit is good) but come on, all i want is originality lol
