Rutland, USA (2002)
User ReviewsReview this title
Everyone should see this movie. If you are one of those people that doesn't like odd comedy and you take everything in life too seriously then just skip it and go stick your head in a toilet. This movie rocked. Here's why...
1. Detective Rose is awesome. He's got to be close to 70 years old and he's rippin' it up on the big screen- better than Leslie Nielson. He's says a line about his ball sack that made me laugh like a little boy.
2. Sara Williams- Hot! Cute girl with great comedic timing. She is the oddest reporter I have ever seen in a movie and I want to see her more. Funny funny funny lines.
3. Lots of characters- I love ensamble casts and this one is funnier than Lord of the Rings. A movie with a lot of characters is more interesting to watch.
4. The Plot wasn't the most well orchestrated thing I have ever seen, but it didn't matter- it was too darn funny. If you want to watch a movie and just have a good time- rent or buy this. It is more funny the second time and even more funny the third.
I think the reason why I loved this movie so much is because I feel like it's my little secret- Just because it doesn't have star power or a million dollar budget. I guess I just wanted to let you all in on a little secret and tell you to find a way to see this movie. If you like stuff like Dumb and Dumber, Something About Mary, Naked Gun, or The Sound of Music- you will love this.
That's my 2 and a half cents- I'm out.
This movie was great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a great absurdist comedy. I would give this a four star rating!!!
What I got was the funniest, purest, most raw movie I have seen in a long time. First, the acting, though not polished, was a definite must to the flick as a whole. After all, most of these actors were the actual citizens from the small hick town that is Rutland, MA. They weren't acting as much as they were living and breathing on film as if it was another day.
The writing was a low-brow treat with jokes delived haphazardly, adding to the humor. Mr. McCracken, was a modern day Inspector Cleauseau with an "in-your-face" Massachusetts edge. And the ensemble that makes up the production company was quirky and, fortunately, did not overshadow the plain folk actors. Everyone blended in fabulously.
In any event, this movie ,at it's very core, is funny, pleasantly real, with a laugh almost every other minute.
If you aren't willing to take a chance on renting it, Ill send you the four bucks. . .cause you need to see this film.
