The performances were all great, but a few stood out, like Kevin Smith and Michael Ian Black. Every time Smith came on screen, I busted at least three guts. The camera really does love him. Black was great too, I cannot see anyone else being Huber, I do not think it would work as well as it did for him. Also, the chick who played Chastity [Natalia Cigliuti?], it was great to see at least one good thing come from Saved By The Bell: The New Class. Besides providing a continuing career for Dustin Diamond.
I loved the way it was set up structurally. Being raised on Sesame Street, my attention span only lasts about, wait, what was I talking about? But, it was truly a film for those of us with 20-second attention spans. And the method worked well. Hell, the whole damn movie worked well.
The self-awareness of the movie played perfect. Most of the time when a flick tries to talk about it self, or has a character addressing the audience, it falls flat on its face.
I loved the ending; it just kept going and going. Just when you thought it was over another scene would pop up. Some will say it is stupid, but I am one of the minority that thinks if something like that is funny the first time, it will be funny the next thousand times. Like on Letterman, some of the gags we does night after night after night, but I laughed harder each successive time.
And since everything above this probably makes little to no sense, I will give Big Helium Dog the highest praise I can give anything. I wanted to own a copy right after seeing it. So I can watch it over and over.
Keep an eye on the is Lynch fellow, his day of fame is coming.
