Move Over, Tommy Wiseau!
8 July 2010 | by (Munich) – See all my reviews

I am not sure I understand if this movie was supposed to be funny or not so funny. The script has a confusing relationship with marijuana and alcohol; people don't seem to be actually intoxicated, yet intoxicants-- minus intoxicant humor-- is central to the plot. I won't necessarily fault the acting; the dialog itself constructs this quandary.

Because the humor is so inconsistent throughout the film, in the styles of slapstick and then vague topical humor, one is left confused as to the expectations and intent of this film. I say watch a real National Lampoon Vacation movie for a road trip film, or watch Dazed and Confused for stoner humor. If there's a film that combines the two, it's not to be found in Hard Four, whose dependence on stereotypes and awkward interactions among men and women leaves little to be desired for the modern man or woman.
