Interesting, fun, and worth the price of admission
15 March 2019 | by metaflixincSee all my reviews

Korine is following up the success of 'Spring Breakers' with 'The Beach Bum,' starring Matthew McConaughey as Moon Dog, who gives a fantastic performance which is the end result--and perfection--of the caricature McConaughey has seemingly been developing since his role of Wooderson in the movie Dazed and Confused.

The supporting cast of 'The Beach Bum' does an admirable job, especially Jonah Hill who looks as fit and trim as he has in a long time, since 21 Jump Street. The exception to this is Jimmy Buffet, who Korine assumably just wanted to hang out with, since we've seen better acting from a house plant.

The story of 'The Beach Bum' and the character of Moon Dog aren't very deep. In both respects, what you see is what you get. But they're both interesting and fun, to say the least, and worth the price of admission.
