I guess I should not hold my breath waiting for this on Blu-ray
12 January 2012 | by (College Station, Texas) – See all my reviews

It's interesting to see the outrage that this film provokes. Most of the people who admitted thinking it was funny when they saw it say they were teenagers---young teenagers usually---and have now grown wiser and know better.

I was 31 when this movie came out. I recorded it off cable TV and had it on VHS for about 25 years. My tape wore out and I am resigned to the fact I might not see it again. It's silly and irreverent, but not as terrible as everyone makes out.

Since it makes fun of religion, ethnic groups, sex and humanity, virtually everyone who bothers to comment does so to express contempt.

There was a movie called "The Loved One" about the funeral business that was made some years before this and advertised to have 'something to offend everyone'. It was a very difficult movie to find for years but now exists on DVD. Apparently, compared to "Rabbit Test" that movie based on a book by Evelyn Waugh was a mainstream blockbuster. You can actually find people, like me, who think it's good.

Well, I also think "Rabbit Test" is entertaining. And to put it in perspective, I would prefer it to the 'cringe humor' that seems to be so popular now. "The 40 Year Old Virgin", "The Hangover" and many others of similar ilk don't make me laugh, they make me want to crawl under a chair or run. Why is "Rabbit Test" not cringingly bad? Perhaps because it's so silly that I cannot take it seriously.

And those who do? Lighten up.
