Don't bother with even ten minutes of it
28 December 2011 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I couldn't. I knew from the very first unfunny scene that this would be a stinker. They show a picture of the town sign with eggs being thrown at it--isn't that a scream? Guy throws himself off bridge into a shallow creek and doesn't die--how hilarious. Stale jokes, lame jokes, unbelievable characters (look--to be funny, we kind of have to believe in the reality of at least some of the people involved), jokes about paralysis, about naked guys pressing themselves against each other (like they're gay, see? Isn't that so funny?). The film is shot in eye-scarifying garish color and everyone looks sweaty, seedy and grubby. I suppose that's also supposed to be a total laff riot. The soundtrack is twangy scratchy country-western guitar, like something out of Laugh-In's short films. Don't waste your time.
