Definitely Funny!
9 April 2005 | by arlaunySee all my reviews

Mr. Bones may base mainly on so called 'toilet humor' and has a rough start. Maybe for some of you this special kind of humor is too flat, but it's up to you to decide. In my opinion this movie plays with humor in a sympathetic, childlike and simple way that forces me to think that the scriptwriter was totally drunk (maybe something else...)! I watched a lot of films lately, but none of them made me laugh as hard as this one. OK, if you want some pretentious entertainment this movie should not be your choice but for all other people: "Ignore the story and ignore the dialogs! Just enjoy the scenery and the jokes and have a good time!"
