Big Helium Dog comes with the funny.
21 August 2003 | by (Jackson, NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie answers the age old question, "Just what is a big helium dog?" Ok, well it actually doesn't do that, but it does answer the question, "What is 89 minutes long and awesome?" And that answer is Big Helium Dog...which I suppose kind of answers the first question. Whatever, the point is I caught this movie at a festival last year, and it is some seriously funny stuff.

Basically, Big Helium Dog takes everything you think you know about comedies, straps it to a monkey and shoots it into outer space. It breaks every rule, side steps every tired cliche, flies from tangent to tangent, and somehow ties it all together in the end. The result? A kinetic, absurd, and flat out hilarious sketch comedy movie.

The writing is great. The cast is great. The naked guy from Super Troopers is great. It's rare that a movie actually dares to do its own thing. What's even more rare is when one succeeds so wildly.
