Ridiculously Good
31 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe that there are any users who take life so seriously as to give this movie a bad review. Don't listen to the naysayers! Awesome cameos by cult favorites like Bruce Campbell, Drew Barrymore, and David Carradine. This movie tackles multiple genres in irreverent and entertaining style. In my opinion this is better than the original, although Sarah in the original movie was much cuter. If your idea of a good start to a Sunday is eating Grape Nuts, taking a jog, and then coming home to button up and put on a tie on your day off stay away. Otherwise, grab yourself drink, a snack, skip the shower, and be a bum with this flick. Perfect.
