A forgotten Sarah Marshall clone, made nearly a decade prior
2 October 2018 | by AylmerSee all my reviews

This movie plays a lot like FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL. So close in fact that you might think it was just a cash-in, but this film was shot in 2000 and sat on the shelf for years before finally finding distribution. While intermittently funny, the film feels like a mess with many disconnected scenes and so much partying that it makes you wonder where the filmmakers' priorities were while shooting this.

We get some interesting cameos in the form of Chrisopher Walken, Robert Wagner, Morgan Fairchild, and Rutger Hauer, but they're not in the film very much and aren't really on their A-game. This is particularly in the case of Hauer, who appears stoned or drunk out of his mind during the duration of the shoot. Walken and Wagner go largely wasted, especially a funny gag opportunity they missed. The two could have gotten in a fight on a boat, accidentally pushed a girl into the water, who drowns, and then look at each other and yell, "oh no, not again!". No such luck.

Technically the film feels a bit uneven with some occasional poor cinematography followed by some great work. It makes me wonder if two different crews shot this thing. Many jokes fall totally flat but a running gag in which the two leads keep getting mistaken for a gay couple works surprisingly well, particularly during the scene in which someone overhears their conversation about scuba gear through a doorway. Fairchild gets in a quick shower scene in one of the highlights of the film.

The main showpiece of the film, in which several people drink a spiked beverage, goes sadly wasted and doesn't really affect anything later on. Things drag and get repetitive, but still, consider yourself lucky finding this extreme rarity.
