Film was slower than the VW microbus.
14 June 2010 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

Saw Bass Ackwards this weekend at the Waterfront Film Festival, but ended up leaving about 15 minutes before the movie was done due to boredom. I watch a lot of films and this is the first time I've walked out early.

There were way too many scenes of the Vw Microbus getting passed by semi-trucks on the highway. It was funny for the first few times and then just became insulting. I think a three year old would have understood the point that it was a slow and frustrating vehicle well before using the same gag about 10 or 15 times.

There were a couple entertaining moments he had with the service station guy "no speak English" and Linas' Christopher Walken impersonation.
