The Comedic Timing Here is Genius
21 April 2011 | by (Oak Ridge, TN) – See all my reviews

I laughed throughout. Non-stop.

This is really a stylish ensemble packed to the rafters with laughables. The comedic timing is genius, there is not a dull moment. Sure ==> there are cheesy moments, the characters could be developed a bit more, the score... well the score was spot on. The score was a perfect mimicry of the scenes: a quaint, goofy eloquence of sorts... And developing the characters any further would be to the detriment of the film. The cheesy moments were perfectly timed. This is COMEDY.

There's not much I'd criticize here. I throughly enjoyed this one. It was a brilliant display of wit. I love to smile and this did not disappoint. I smiled from the moment "A Crackle Film" appeared on the screen and Ray (Jon Dore) began his spiel about pigs that could coalesce into "a force with a stench so bad it'd have to be smelled to be believed."

That line he delivered with a stolid seriousness... It truly set the stage for some exquisitely laughable moments. And I giggled raucously.

I laughed throughout. Non-stop.
