A quick test to see if you'll like this movie...
22 January 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A quick test to see if you'll like this movie...

1. When watching movies, do you find yourself yelling, "Oh come ON!" or "This is SOOOOO stupid!" or "That would NEVER happen!"?

2. Do you frequently hurl popcorn, small objects and your baby brother at the screen?

3. Do you think "suspension of disbelief" is some sort of automotive terminology?

If you answered yes to all 3 of the above, then I guarantee you will hate this movie and possibly commit murder before it's over. If, on the other hand, you don't mind watching a movie that is incalculably, preposterously, ridiculously unbelievable, then you will friggin LOVE this film.

I love this movie because it doesn't try to convince you of anything. It doesn't attempt to rationalize or explain or justify any of the absurdities, and so it doesn't waste any time before getting right to the core of things. We're just supposed to accept that a 180-lb stud can squash himself into a dress, grab a quick shave & throw some gloves over his hulking man-hands, and that'll fool the world into thinking he's a glamour gal. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE IT???! The film goes from one preposterous situation to another, and it never lets up. Unlike "Tootsie" or "Mrs. Doubtfire" or "Victor Victoria" or "Some Like It Hot" where the cross-dresser at least remotely resembles a person of the opposite sex, Tyler Christopher is the damned ugliest woman you've ever seen, and they don't even try to make him/her look believable. That's the joke, folks! Other preposterous things happen, like albums being recorded & going gold in a matter of days, and in the same spirit we're just supposed to laugh at how ridiculous these things are and that no one seems to notice.

Before seeing this, I was expecting a run-of-the-mill, formulaic comedy. But "Face the Music"'s bold approach to stupidity made immediately me sit up & take notice. This is a farce without making it obvious that it's a farce. Though in a different genre entirely, it reminds me of "Shadow of the Vampire" which is a subtle horror comedy though many people don't realize it. Movies like this are a real treat.
