Crop And Save
I laughed a lot. Worth seeing.
I appreciated that they didn't try to shoehorn a moral in the story. The premise is thin. Oversexed Grandpa goes on a road trip to deliver his 8-year-old grandson to the boys ne'er-do-well father ( who wants to boy solely for the child support payment). Also, the corpse of Grandpa's recently deceased wife is taken along for the ride.
There isn't a plot (naturally, most of it is hidden cam). It's mostly a series of gags (most of which are familiar, but I laughed a lot. A LOT). The interactions between Knoxville and the young boy are natural and hilarious. I loved the kid. He was cute as a button and immediately likable.
I was grateful that the film didn't turn mawkish at the end. I enjoyed it throughout. The humor is crude but nothing you haven't seen in any R-rated studio comedy.
I checked out this movie really expecting it to be entertaining, somewhat scary, or possibly thought-provoking.
It seems to me the movie could've been half as long and we wouldn't have missed anything important. Part of the reason it's so difficult to get invested in this movie is because there are no sympathetic characters. All the males besides Ricky are necrophiliacs, apparently. THe zombie girl...we get no explanation for her existence and truth be told she isn't very interesting. Ricky is the only male character who doesn't want to have sex with a zombie girl, and he's not sympathetic either. I didn't really care about Joanne either. We don't learn much about her other than Ricky has a crush on her, they shared a kiss as young kids, and she's currently dating a a dumb jock thug.
I just couldn't get invested in this. When there's no character to sympathize with, there are no stakes. I didn't care how it all turned out and the movie really seemed to drag on and on and on.
On the positive side, the zombie girl was creepy-looking and there are some nice gross-out scenes. A couple times I jumped. But mostly I was just disappointed in this movie. And I have a hard time believing that 4 high school boys were willing to have sex with a virtual corpse. It's a pretty rare fetish, no?
