Seen it twice and yet still missed so much.
3 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

That's not a bad thing, but I kept missing so many lines cause I was laughing. Remember in that movie, Airplane, when there was a joke like every minute? Yea, it's like that, but not on an airplane. I loved this movie. I wish I could see it again, hopefully I will one day. I've heard rumors of a dvd release. Ok, so plot. This film has it. Charlie lost his friend Ray and is struggling to get over it. And there's Satan, making himself a media star. And there's Martin Huber, played by the rocking Michael Ian Black, in a field of cows... Can't fully explain that. There's so much great material in this movie, it's hard to really describe it without ruining some of the jokes. The opening, without any details, is by far one of the funniest openings to a film I have ever seen. Within five minutes, if you're not in pain from laughing, well then, you have no comedy heart. Matt K, the lead, turned in a wonderful performance. The guy is just plain lovable. I smell the next Robert Hayes, but with less made-for-tv credits to his name. The film also managed to have a killer soundtracks, with songs from bands such as The Vandals. This energetic music fit the frantic and fun tone of the movie. With the release of the film not set in stone, I doubt a soundtrack will ever see the light of day. But if I ever get a complete track listing, I'll be as sure as heck making my own copy and possibly a few more to sell on ebay. I haven't seen a movie quite like this one before, and I doubt I will again, unless writer/director Brian Lynch decides to film a Big Helium Dog 2. One can only hope. In the meantime, I suggest taking any chance you have to see this flick. You'll be missing out on a great one. Do it for Timmy Jax (that's a movie reference, you'd get it if you've seen Big Helium Dog, so try to and we'll all be able to laugh together).
