Satire, or Juvenile Prank?
27 March 2009 | by assistant-71See all my reviews

At one—and the most successful—level, the film lampoons "in search of documentaries" such as Morgan Spurlock's latest effort, Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden? In this case, the fictional object of the search is small-town loser and legendary eccentric Lucky "Cucumber" Cavanaugh—a less-than-average guy who sabotages bathtub races with Molotov cocktails and lives with his grandfather in a cave. But the object of the satire here is not Lucky so much as it is the doc's fictional filmmakers Phillip Fellini and Forrest Fonda. Granted, the Jackass and South Park mode of lunacy hits the mark from time to time, as Lucky Cucumber is actually more focused than many of the films it apes. But the film wanders and never really finds its stride, and jumps the rails entirely with idiotic diversions. This is bachelor party material at best.
