Entertaining but raunchy and violent live-action cartoon
4 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

In Mexico, Jose is given $10,000 (plus more when he completes the job) to deliver "vigoroso" across the border. What is that? We are never told explicitly (actually, maybe we are; quotes from the movie show some of what was taken out for TV). But the hookers with Jose can see what it does, and they are impressed. We can't see because Jose has his back to the camera, but he is facing them.

You don't want to know how Jose transports the stuff.

In Paradise, Arizona, Dale has lost the race for sheriff. We first meet him out on a rural highway where he chases a trucker doing 92 and shows just what a bumbling idiot he is, while the confident trucker just smiles.

The new sheriff is Dale's good-looking nephew Mitch, a cattle rancher. (I should mention that Jose's disgusting secret involves cattle.) Mitch's old girlfriend Candy is coming to town for a wedding, and it's possible they will get together once again. Candy is not happy with her mobster husband Eddie, who is running for office in New York and can't risk losing the Catholic vote by getting a divorce. Eddie has business in Arizona as well; his Uncle Frank can never come back to New York (we're never told what offense he committed for such a dire punishment) so he is in Arizona, which he hates.

All of these seemingly unrelated plot lines intersect in a hilarious but violent and raunchy mess, which is nevertheless entertaining.

No one should watch this expecting good acting. Although Matthew Modine's sheriff/rancher shows a lot of intelligence and confidence. Elizabeth Berkley makes her "Saved by the Bell" performance look good, until close to the end when she is also strong and confident. Paul Rodriguez is the Latino Adam Sandler, but that's okay because he's fun. Michael Gray is funny as a hopelessly dense employee of Mitch's ranch. Robert Loggia actually comes close to doing a good job. I actually thought he was Vic Tayback because he sounds just like him.

This was fun. Just remember not to let the kids in the room, especially if it's not cleaned up for TV.
