Crop And Save
Finally, after a long dry-spell, I have found a live-action TV show that actually makes me laugh again.
Watching this show made me burst out laughing so many times. The script is wonderfully written and the actors have excellent comedic timing to match it. Sure, there are a few less-than-funny parts about it, but then again, it's not sketch comedy, so it can't be funny all the time.
McHale leads nicely, but both he and Gillian Jacobs do a weird 180 degree turn in character after a couple of episodes. It was supposed to be a step meant to make them seem more human and vulnerable, rather than absurd, comedic characters, but ends up making you a bit uneasy. A special kudos goes to Ken Jeong, for portraying one of the funnier characters portrayed on screen as of late.
Snakes on a Plane (2006)
A Cult Movie Before It Even Opened
The movie opened in Israel on the 17th, a full day before the rest of the world and I couldn't say no (moreover because the Hebrew title was mistranslated to 'Snakes on THE plane' - 'Nekhashim Al HaMatos') and took a few friends to watch it.
I laughed so hard I was going to cry! This movie should be categorized as Comedy!
And now for the straight faced review: It was horrible. There was no character development in sight and the movie was so riddled with plot holes, loose ends and half-baked ideas that one has to assume the writer was under the influence of some narcotic drug. The script was so painfully played out by some of the actors that you would imagine it was because they couldn't keep themselves from bursting out in laughter at its absurdity.
Samuel Jackson acted worse than pretty much any other role he's ever played, even though it looks like the part was written for him (or at least a few 'special' lines).
The snakes look like they're CG during most of the times they really were, which is OK if your movie came out in the 90s. Or is this bad.
Snakes + Plane = Snakes on a Plane!
