James Woods wasn't just chewing the scenery around him -- he ate the props, the lights and despite being filmed in 2D, popped out in 3D! He starts off playing a sober man, even though he seems to be juggling tics, explosive gestures and has eyeballs that seem ready to pop out of his sockets. Then 20 minutes into this flick, his character gets hooked on coke and the real comedy begins. His downward trajectory of drug addiction is the stuff of comedy gold. Then there is Sean Young as his loyal coke-head wife which is unintentional hilarity! Her delivery of the line "I thought I was going to have to get an abortion" with a smile -- is so amazingly misguided and funny -- it belongs on midnight screenings with drunken audience members throwing stuff at the screen. I don't know how I haven't watched this train wreck of a film until tonight -- but if you want to point and laugh at one of the worst movies ever, look no further than THE BOOST.
