Goofs

When Terry, Trixie & Dean are driving from Fort McMurray to visit West Edmonton Mall, they are shown driving under a highway sign referring to Edmonton as being to the north, with an exit to Rimbey. Edmonton is south of Fort McMurray, & Rimbey is south of Edmonton, so the shot was evidently taken when the filmmakers were traveling from their Calgary base to Edmonton. See more »

Dean and Terry still given'r, with more laughs and chaos
1 February 2011 | by (Guelph, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Canadian filmmaker Michael Dowse made his feature-length debut in 2002 with "Fubar", a cult hit mockumentary about two Alberta headbangers played by Paul Spence and David Lawrence. When I first saw that movie in 2005, I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't exactly what I was expecting, and may have left me a bit puzzled. I have watched it again twice since then, and I definitely thought it was better during those two viewings, good enough to make me interested in seeing this sequel when I heard about it. The only movie I saw in theatres in 2010 was Tim Burton's version of "Alice in Wonderland", which I didn't even like. I didn't see "Fubar II" on the silver screen, but have since seen it on DVD, and now think both "Fubar" films are pretty funny.

It appears Dean Murdoch has now been free of testicular cancer for five years, but he and his friend, Terry Cahill, are continuing their self-destructive partying lifestyle. At a party to celebrate Dean's five post-cancer years, Terry is informed by Tron, the duo's friend and "party leader," that they could make a lot of money working with him as oil pipeliners in Fort McMurray. During this conversation outside, Dean happens to be wasted in his bedroom and accidentally sets the place on fire, so he has to be rescued from the house as it is destroyed! The now homeless Dean and Terry then head up north to start their pipeline laying jobs. It isn't long before they begin to receive their high wages, putting an end to their financial trouble. They soon meet Trish, a local strip bar waitress whom every member of the pipeline crew claims to have had sex with! Terry begins to date this woman, and seems to be getting into a serious relationship with her, but this ends up threatening his longtime friendship with Dean.

The 2002 mockumentary features lots of raunchiness, insanity, and bizarre dialogue, and in case you were wondering, none of this has changed in the sequel! It didn't have me consistently laughing throughout, but I sure did find a lot of laughs, some bigger than others, and when the antics of the characters weren't quite enough to make me laugh, I think I was usually still smiling. With all the rapid dialogue, I'm sure I didn't catch all the jokes (I think that's been the case every time I've seen the original "Fubar"), but certainly still caught a lot of them, and the dialogue is very often the reason for the laughs, which is good, since it's such a major part of the humour. There may have been parts around the beginning which made it look to me like this sequel was going to be inferior to the original, but this didn't last long, and viewers may find some surprises later in the plot. David Lawrence (Terry) and Paul Spence (Dean) again put on good comical performances as the two leads, and another cast highlight is singer Terra Hazelton making her film acting debut as the Trish character. The arguments Terry and Trish have are definitely among the parts of this sequel that made me laugh.

It seems that movie sequels usually aren't as well liked as their predecessors, and maybe that's the case with this one, but I'm still rating it a seven out of ten, the same rating I gave the original. After watching "Fubar" for the first time, I knew what to expect during my second and third viewings, which was probably the main reason why it was funnier with those subsequent viewings. Even though it took eight years for this sequel to come, I was still expecting "Fubar II" to be a very similar idea to Michael Dowse's 2002 feature-length debut, which it is, and as such, it did not disappoint me. If you saw the original "Fubar" and didn't like it at all or were maybe even disgusted by it, I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't feel any differently about this 2010 sequel, so I suggest you avoid it at all costs. However, for the fans of the cult hit from eight years earlier, I really think this sequel to it is well worth checking out.
