After a long and frustrating day at the office (well you really can’t say office when you’ve worked outdoors can you? unless you consider nature your office…but thats another story – so, on to the theatre). I was on my way to kick back and clear my messed up head with Rush Hour 3. But along came a friend and converted me to this film. I really didn’t know anything about this one so I had no pre-assumptions. And maybe that’s why it saved my day, more than Rush Hour could ever have done, I bet.
It’s about girls, boys and babies. Oh and don’t forget tits and drugs! If you are the least bit allergic to lazy pot-heads, sleazy male humour or human relationships going up and down… go see… umm.. I dunno… maybe Over the Hedge? In the end this really isn’t anything more than a boy meets a girl drama/comedy but all in all I liked this one for it’s entertainment values, I laughed out loud many times.
All the sleaziness and the other stuff was done in good humour and each and everyone got their share of laughs – so, (to make this review connect to movie history) I’ll say it has the qualities that made Chaplin movies great: You’re sometimes not quite sure whether to laugh or cry and when you laugh you(mainly) are not laughing at them but with them (and plz don’t crucify me for comparing it to Chaplin – because I really am not!). And beneath all the ganja smoke this movie maybe even tries to say something?
