So, to put it straight, this is a film about three boys, or rather about two boys, who have gone on a quest to get some alcohol for a party that they have been invited to. Also, this is one of the last parties that they will be able to get to (namely because they aren't invited to many) and it is also an opportunity to hook up with a couple of girls that they really like. The thing is that, as I suggested, this isn't like a typical film in that not only are the women treated like human beings, and not just a conquest, but kindness and respect are actually rewarded, as opposed to ridiculed.
In fact some of the characters are really interesting, particularly the girl that has put in the request for the alcohol, namely because it turns out that she doesn't drink. The only reason she wanted the alcohol was because it was a party, however she had no interest in indulging. In fact, one interesting thing is that we see these two guys, who are ridiculed by the 'jocks', turn out to be the better guys. In fact, the adventure makes them the life of the party.
Yeah, they really do go on a pretty awesome adventure, which results in what has turned out to be an all time classic gross joke - the period blood. I'll say no more about it, but I suspect that this is probably well known because the film has been around for quite a while. Mind you, I knew nothing about it until I watched the film, so I guess there is that. Okay, a lot of films these days do try to push the boundaries, yet this is something that is certainly going to be memorable. Oh, and there are the cops, they are nothing short of awesome. Of course, we find the truth about them later, but the movie also does an awesome job of humanising the cops. Normally, especially in such films, the cops are seen as the bad guys, the party poopers, but not these guys. In fact, they are literally the life of the film, which once again isn't surprising because half of the scenes were improvised. Like, seeing them switch on their lights just because they didn't want to stop at a red light makes you want to scream out 'I knew it! I knew they did that' (though I have actually seen them do it on occasion).
Yeah, this film is an absolute gem. It is a film about two guys who learn that women are not conquests, but are people, and the end turns out to be quite surprising. It is a film about male bonding, not in a sexual sense, but in a sense that men can have a really close relationship without it being sexual in any sense of the word. Mind you, the conditioning of our society does say otherwise, but in reality, this is simply not the case at all. It is a film about how cops are people too, and that they can also have fun. Yet, it is also a film about growing up, about coming of age, and about how friendships may have their ups and downs, but in the end a good friendship endures.
