Movie Review by Zara
September 27th, 2008

I've come to like Danny McBride quite a bit through his roles in this summer's TROPIC THUNDER and PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. This movie was actually made a couple of years ago and is what brought him to the success that he is having with big budget studios nowadays, with Will Farrell and his production company picking up THE FOOT FIST WAY for major distribution.

McBride himself once commented that this was just something that he and a bunch of friends made for some laughs amongst one another, in an area of interest that they shared and felt hadn't been picked clean in comedies. And to its credit, the movie does have that original vibe to it.

The thing that got to me is that a human can only withstand so much of the uncomfortable humour that it brings to the screen. Yes, it's obviously low budget and that adds to some of the uncomfortable feel of it (you get this feeling that these poor slobs were genuine in trying to make a comedy if you didn't know any better) but overall, because of its crude demeanor, it can be shift-in-your-seat uncomfortable. Like listening in on a strange couple have an argument in the grocery store, where you feel sort of bad for them but also get a little ticked that they can't keep their personal business to themselves.

That said, I've got to say that I'm far more behind seeing McBride in more projects and hope he does well. His is definitely a shtick angle that he's working, but it's far less grating and obnoxious than that of Jonah Hill, someone I could care less if I ever saw in another movie again.
