Fresh off-beat and very funny.
4 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Devoid of any hype "Scorched", is one of those movies, which totally takes you by surprise, and I mean this in the best of ways. It reminded me of Nick Gomez's "Drowning Mona", because it is set in a small town, its fresh, off-beat, and very funny. While it may not be everybody's cup of tea, individuals with a liking for fresh comedy will probably lap it up, just like I did. The movie tells the tale of average people who are fed up with the problems of everyday life, and so decide to take their revenge by robbing the local bank, which happens to be their place of work. The movie is well written, and awesomely directed by Grazer. Even the casting works very well, by mixing established, semi-established and young and up-coming actors, which include John Cleese, Alicia Silverstone, Woody Harrelson, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Paulo Costanzo.
