Where did the humor go?
Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark
16 October 2011
"Balls to the Wall" was exactly what I had expected it to be; a rather
mediocre comedy. Now, I say mediocre because this movie is conflicted
by two main issues. First, there is very little comedy in the movie
(that will make me laugh), so that was a disappointment. On the upside,
however, was the storyline. It was a brilliant storyline and well
The cast in "Balls to the Wall" was pretty good. Despite not being
familiar with the lead actor (Joe Hursley), he did a good job with this
role and character. And towards the end, at the male exotic dance
contest there were some pretty good look-alike people at the judging
table. That was fun to see.
The story is fairly good. Ben Camelino is going to marry his love
Rachel Matthews (played by Jenna Dewan-Tatum). But the father in-law
(played by Christopher McDonald) doesn't have the required money, and
turns of events leads Ben to end up as an exotic dancer, dancing for
money. It is a sweet story, but it could have been spiced up with more
humor and awkward situations.
"Balls to the Wall" is good a single viewing, but it doesn't have
enough punch or value to make you want to watch it a second time
around. It is good for a single evening of entertainment, just don't
except to be wiping tears away from your cheeks from laughing so hard,
because the movie is lacking humor!
