An Awful Movie
24 August 2001 | by Craig-9See all my reviews

The secret to the Farelly Bros. films is that they have a certain sweetness to them. Sure, they're filled with grossness, but they have characters that we care about and an underlying good-naturedness. The writer and director of _Say It Isn't So_ haven't figured this out. They rely instead on mean-spiritedness that goes on so long that, with just a few changes, this could have been a truly horrifying thriller/drama, instead of a comedy that merely falls flat on its face. I'm truly worried about today's audiences and their expectations for comedy. Moviegoers who've grown up on a diet of _Home Alone_ and _Baby's Day Out_, graduating to material like _Scary Movie_ and this misbegotten film, will never learn to appreciate true comic masterpieces, like the Pink Panther films, or the Naked Gun series. Their expectations for comedy will include grossness and violence, not carefully-planned sight gags and pratfalls or well-written puns and humorous dialogue. I should have turned this off mid-movie and rewound it and returned it to the store, but I masochistically watched the whole thing and I have to say I despair about the state of movie comedy at this point in time.
