A different way of telling a story
It's funny, it's tense, it features two great performances from two actors and the director expertly creates a web of odd tension where you actually don't know what is happening for the majority of the run time.
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
Great example of an old-fashioned, pure-at-heart escapist event movie that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not and has boat loads of fun being its own ludicrous self.
The only other mockumentary from HBO that I saw before that was "7 Days in Hell", it had Andy Samberg and Kit Harington (two actors that I'm a fan of), but didn't work for me, was unfunny at all. But here, man, this work! Tour de Pharmacy has some amazing actors here (Samberg, Bloom), is really short, and really funny too, there are some cool and sily (in a good way) jokes. I think I have to warning you: It's a trash movie, so go see it with this in mind, and I think that you will have a good time.7,5/10
Tour de pharmacy Man this started out so freaking good! Then it kept recycling and reusing the same jokes over and over and over and over and over and over again. Seriously. I'm tempted to repeat myself fifty times in this review because on the flipping hour I spent watching them reuse multiple jokes multiple times. If they didn't have enough material then why not give us a 30 minute movie? Such a waste. What the heck were they thinking? It is an hour long comedy that feels like it is 3 hours long. Skip this.. or just watch the first ten and last ten minutes.
I loved 7 Days in Hell so I'd been looking forward to this for months, but it kind of fell flat even though I laughed quite hard at the trailer itself, which in my opinion gave away the best jokes of the show. It could be because I've seen 7 Days in Hell that the humor felt somewhat less original the second time around, as a lot of the jokes are in principle the same (e.g. the balls underwear in 7 Days --> the see-through microdick suit in this one). I think it's just too short to flesh out any of the characters properly, which was done perfectly with Kit Harington and Andy Samberg in the slightly-longer 7 Days. The Lance Armstrong 'joke' was fantastic, but overplayed. That said, I'd definitely look forward to a "series" of these, but I'm not sure I'd recommend this one to friends like I did with 7 Days.
If you like Andy Samberg's style of comedy you will love this. Totally makes fun in an over the top way of doping in cycling.If you liked 7 Days in Hell, you will also like this on.Even though tennis is the most boring sport to watch in the history of the world, two people hitting a ball back and forth over and over and over again. Acting like giant babies when the judge makes a call. 7 Days in Hell was still funny.The gags where all pretty funny, it is always cool to watch actors do things that are not in there norm.
