I'll Believe You (2006)
User ReviewsReview this title
I was most surprised by how good the actor who played Puddy was from "Seinfeld." I have never seen him in anything other than "Seinfeld," but he was wonderful! And he's handsome enough to be a movie star. I don't know why he isn't.
The teacher in the movie is very good as well. She's a smart woman. She's not Pars Hilton. She could be a role model for young girls, which is a nice change. And the chubby police officer is very cute and very funny! My son still quotes lines from him.
I suppose since this is a review, I should say what I didn't like, too. There are some police men in the movie that I didn't care for. And I didn't understand what the woman who ate dead birds was doing (don't ask!). But these scenes are really short and the rest of the movie was top notch!
I hope it comes out soon, because my son would love to see it again, but I have not seen a single ad or poster. So who knows? But it is very good! See it if you can!
The movie moves forward with a search for the truth about a mysterious caller. Dale calls on his friends, sceptics and eccentrics alike - some are clichéd characters and some are original. Including some great comedic actors (like Ed Helms and Fred Willard), the laughs are endless.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, as I'm sure that everyone involved in the making of the movie did as well. This is a well made independent movie that deserves to be seen.
I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys a smart, original, very funny movie about possible UFOs and aliens!
How often does that happen?
This film is coming out in November and I recommend seeing it. Patrick Warburton, the guy who was Puddy, is really good. So is the star David Alen Basche.
Ed Helms of the Office and The Daily Show has a funny cameo that you will not recognize him.
I hope it becomes a hit a la Blair With Project
The result is an ever growing ocean of excrement, films that are just terrible from filmmakers who haven't got a clue, that the audience has to swim through to find anything worth watching. I've tried to seek out low budget movies I've never heard of and for every decent one I've found, there are at least 10 that are so awful they made me want to jump in front of a moving bus.
Don't get me wrong. There's always been terrible films, but the ease of production is allowing more and more to be created by people who have less and less business making movies and the voracious drive to gouge every possible cent out of the public, along with the desperate hope of personal glory, is throwing all that worthless junk onto video store shelves and computer screens around the world. The result is a home entertainment minefield where viewers' appetite and aptitude for entertainment is being blown away.
I'll Believe You is almost a perfect example of this problem. It has a halfway interesting idea for a story and an inexplicably large number of recognizable performers in it, but it stinks on ice. The plot is a drooling mess, the dialog never rises above the inane, the three main characters are portrayed by "actors" who had to have gotten the roles by being friends with the producers because no one in their right mind would cast these people as anything other than back ground extras in a fast food commercial, and the direction is barely more than a half-step better than what you'll see on your local public access television channel. This story of a late night radio host who gets a call from a gibberish-spouting alleged alien is dumb, unfunny and poorly executed. Particular derision has to go to the supposed star of the film, David Alan Basche, who has all the sincerity and emotional range of a 1976 TV game show announcer.
The only credit I can give I'll Believe You is that it lets you know right away it's going to suck. The opening credits list a special appearance by Chris Elliott, of all people, and the first scenes are dominated by a bunch of expository narration, the crutch of every inexperienced and graceless filmmaker who doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
And just to be clear, this thing doesn't have the energy or imagination to be "so bad it's good". It's only plain, old fashioned, bore-you-out-of-your-skull bad. Instead of watching it, a better use of your time would be clipping your toenails and the toenails of 10 random homeless people. Don't even bother with I'll Believe You.
Really what was I expecting. Well, I expected the bigger celebrities to have a bigger role. Chris Elliot is barely in it, Ed Helms is barely in it, Fred Willard is barely in it, not many people have big roles. Perhaps I am being a bit too harsh. But I hated this film.
The film is about a guy who has a radio show called I'll believe you where he tries to prove things like Bigfoot and Nessie. One day he gets a call from somebody that he thinks is an alien because he talks very funny. Like backwards or something. So he tries desperately to save his show and find the aliens.
I'll believe you is a bad,bad, bad movie. The characters(the main one I don't know his name) is to me irritating. The ending to this movie is pretty retarded. I don't want to say that I was disappointed with this movie, but it wasn't what I expected. I shouldn't have expected much if not anything.
I'll believe you:*/****
