Irreverence can be funny
7 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Okay, okay this is obviously not a 10/10 movie. But I felt compelled to give it a high rating due to the ridiculous hate it seems to be getting.

It's not supposed to be a masterpiece. It's an attempt at irreverent comedy delivered in deadpan style. As such, it succeeds. It's not for everyone and I'm sure plenty of people will find something to be offended over, but that doesn't make it a bad movie. I found it quite funny, and there isn't a bad performance to be seen. Elizabeth Shue is especially good.

There are so many genuinely bad movies accepted as decent out there. It surprises me to see this one being so targeted.
