The Worst Film Ever
Sorry, this movie sucks
How sad is this?
Good movie, but best of all time? Hardly . . .
I saw the cover, and it reminded me of Weekend at Bernie's so felt the need to see it. I had no idea I was going to enjoy this film so much. We've seen the plot before, we know where it is going, but it just feels different, it felt so more relaxed and unforced. The delivery of lines was second to none, I found the timing the one thing that kept me smiling from start to finish. I have not heard of either of the two main characters before, but I will be following them from now on. Especially Brooks Wheelan, I couldn't help but find everything he did, said or gestured, was hysterical. The story is like a bad episode of Magnum PI, but it is executed so well, we know what is going to happen within the first few minutes, and you expect a "Hangover" type movie, but it isn't. I don't know why it has such a low rating. This genre has its blockbusters, but this had a totally different feel. Totally unexpected favourite!
Except for the drug lord, the characters in the movie are mostly genial, and in a weird way, even Joe Pantoliano comes across less menacing in his linen whites. The goons in black, funny as can be, follow orders with more brawn than brains. Drugs and orgies seem par for the course and the hallucination effects were wild! Composer Bryce Jacob's original rendition of "Best Man" is soulful and haunting. The easygoing story-line of Random Tropical Paradise romps through a fantasy escapade, enough to distract you from the real-world craziness.
Enjoyable from beginning to end. The superb writing kept me hooked and laughing throughout. Brooks Wheelan stood out with his excellent delivery though the rest of the cast performed remarkably as well. Would recommend this movie to any comedy lover who appreciates quick witty banter and well executed jokes spanning the depths of pop culture.
I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this one. It's got a little bit of everything, fratty humor, pop-culture humor, absurdity, romance, drug trips, dildos, and even a little darkness amongst the sunny tropical vibes.This is the perfect choice when you want to relax and watch something where you don't need to think too hard. Just sit back, crack a couple cold brews and enjoy the ride!
