low budget "B" comedy is crude but has moments of brilliance...
This low budget "B" romance comedy is crude but it has moments of brilliance. The real find here is Mark Mikulski, a big brawny guy with a handsome boyish face playing a very dumb cluck who works in agribusiness...that is a big poultry concern. And his deadpan comic timing is flawless... Nearly every sequence involving him and his girlfriend is brilliant, priceless and very funny. The "designer jeans", the day at the beach, the romantic fantasy dance episode that ends in her ripping off his tuxedo, then mounting him, and the body-painting with sex sequence are all superb and hilarious.
My only complaint is that some of these sequences were just too short! Where the film goes wrong is in the anecdotal lectures that the judge gives them: they needed to be more developed and would have been much more effective if the visualizations of them were impersonated by the two leads instead of substitutes who are much less talented and less fun to watch. With a bit more work on the script and much more of the young couple, especially Mikulski, this would have been far better than most of the mainstream "A"-list comedies. What a shame that Mikulski wasn't discovered by the rest of the film industry...he would have been a great asset to any cast. The film rates about a 4, but because of Mikulski my rating goes 3 points higher!
