Crop And Save
The Last House on the Left (2009)
Just plain boring!
If you're in the mood for a popcorn-friendly horror teen flick, suit yourself. But if you actually care at least a little about having a solid script and good acting, stay away from this boring and predictable bad effort of a shock movie.
Looking for blood and gruesome deaths? You are way better with any Tarantino movie. Or even the first ones from the Saw saga. Looking for an amazing script regarding vengeance? Do yourself a favor and watch Chan-Wook Park's Lady Vengeance. This sleep-inducing remake just doesn't deliver in any of those subjects.
My biggest problem is with the rhythm. It could easily lose half an hour in length, and that would make it a little more entertaining. As it is, just from reading the summary on IMDb, you know exactly what's going to happen in the first 70 minutes.
There are better things to watch. Don't waste your time.
Holy Sexual Innuendos, Batman!
Beside the low production values (maybe an intentional tribute to the original series) and the simplistic script, this surprisingly entertaining television movie deters from the very childish humor of its first half to a collection of sexual references and boob jokes. Especially noteworthy is the allusion to Burt Ward's "too much junk on the thighs" problem and the portrait of Adam West in a three-way.
With a PG-15 classification, the target audience for this movie seems a little unclear. Too child oriented for the older ones who saw the original series, too ludicrous for a 15-25 public and overtly sexual for a younger audience.
Anyway, is funny enough to enjoy it.
