I'm Not Certain They Could Have Made It Worse if They Tried
InAPPropriate Comedy (2013)
BOMB (out of 4)
I must admit that I was looking forward to this film. After all, earlier in the year I sat through and mildly enjoyed MOVIE 43 so perhaps a second dose of raunchy humor would be worth sitting through. Sadly, this film here makes the other look like the work of Laurel and Hardy. INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY is a "film" that has a man playing various apps that are videos for raunchy, racist humor but sadly none of it is funny. Some of the so-called comedy features a Dirty Harry spoof with Adrien Brody playing a tough but gay cop. Rob Schneider and Michelle Rodriguez play a Siskel and Ebert type who review porn movies. Ari Shaffir plays a reality host known as The Amazing Racist who goes around picking on Mexicans, Jews and blacks. And yeah, there's Lindsay Lohan taking up about two- minutes worth of screen time as Marilyn Monroe. INAPPROPRIATE COMEDY starts off with a spoof of 127 HOURS, which is so unfunny and such a disaster that it pretty much sets you up for everything that's about to follow. Watching this movie you can't help but be somewhat entertained from how bad it is and you often ask yourself what the filmmakers were thinking. I mean, did they not realize half way through production that this thing was horrible? If they didn't realize how bad this was then they shouldn't ever be allowed to make another movie because they're just wasting money. If they did realize how bad it was then they still don't need to make another movie because if they're smart enough to know it's bad then they should have been smart enough to stop production so that they didn't waste more money. I'm not going to lie and say that I never laughed. I can recall three smiles and one laugh that would rate a 1 out of 10. Everything else is just so bad that you can't help but wonder what they were trying to do. The Amazing Racist sequences might have worked if they actually felt real. They all come across as very staged. However, to be fair, even if they weren't staged then they still wouldn't have been funny. There's a take-off on 'Jackass' except done with black people and this here is just so unfunny even though it seems they're wanting to be both racist and offensive. As for the cast, this here is probably the worst thing Schneider has ever done and that's saying a lot. I'm not sure why Rodriquez is here but perhaps the producers had something on her. It's sad to see where former Oscar-winner Brody is with this type of film. With Lohan, let's hope she got some good "stuff" with her paycheck. Again, I thought MOVIE 43 was hilarious at spots and I enjoyed sitting through it. If anyone thought that film was bad then I dare you to try and make it through this thing.
