An impressive first-time feature.
7 April 2014 | by fmarquez1994See all my reviews

I ordered this film on iTunes and was surprised at the layers it holds within its "raunchy- com" feel. What surprises the most about Bad Johnson is its versatility: it can be a dude's film, a sex comedy, a date movie, and many other things. Most important, however, is the genuine plight of this man with his sexual drive, and trying to come to terms with it as he finds an authentic, and committed relationship in his life.

Despite the comedic surrealism of the film's plot, Bad Johnson tells the story of many people today, both men and women and everyone that has dealt with some sort of hindering addiction. This works in delivering both the hilarious element of a detached penis, a man's worst night, but it doesn't shy away from telling a true and relatable story about an addiction, and a closer look into the modern-day womanizer.

As for the comedy, Jeff Tetreault's first feature film is an impressive debut that takes into consideration both the story and the necessary gags. Looking forward to seeing more work by this up-and-coming writer. But what really takes the prize here is the fantastic cast. All actors are in-tune with the comedic elements and the timing: Jamie Chung delivers the angry girlfriend stereotype brilliantly, Nick Thune is equal parts terrifying and hysterical, Katherine Cunningham is a newcomer to look out for, and Cam Gigandet steals every scene with a natural charm and a previously unseen versatility for every kind of role.

The film has its silliness, and its slips in over-doing some of the jokes, as any first feature will have (and especially one of the comedic genre)—however, I was surprised at how much work went into the making of this film.

Definitely worth it, a fun and impressive first-time feature.
