Unsolicited Mini-Reviews Of Films I Have Recently Watched

Forgetting Sarah Marshall – Satisfying dirty rom-com starring some hairless Bigfoot and his unnecessary schlong. I was pretty shocked when they introduced that topless photo of Mila Kunis into the proceedings. Turns out it was a fake (or so says the Internet). I’m kind of relieved. Those were some sizable nips. I’m disappointed more wasn’t done with the fake “CSI” starring Weirdo Baldwin. Potential goldmine ignored.

Baby Mama – Undercooked. Amy Poehler’s character wasn’t trashy enough, the subplot with Greg Kinnear wasn’t terribly believable, and Steve Martin’s stunt casting hurt my dick. There were a lot of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” dudes in this, which was interesting. Also, the triumphant return of Siobhan Fallon! Remember those “Delta Delta Delta” skits she used to do with Melanie Hutsell? Those shits cracked me the f up.

Cast Away – Robert Zemeckis knows how to make epics that don’t really feel all that epic. I can’t believe Chris Noth played [SPOILER DELETED]. Am I the only person who thinks he looks like a fat Hammer Films vampire? Like Peter Cushing’s pudgy undead son.

American Movie – Still hilarious after all these years (until you listen to the commentary track and hear that Mark is still massively in debt and slightly worse for wear). I think my favorite scene in this movie is when Mark thinks he hears his daughter curse. He’s sort of incredulous she may have swore, she’s incredulous that she’s being accused (AND that her father is pathetically acting like he’s cool with it) – the minute or so of awkward tension between this grown man-child and his actual child is tastier than Nachos Bell Grande.

Super Troopers – Speaking of hilarity…this is probably my pick for funniest movie of the decade. Everything Farva does is a mushroom cloud of yuks. “Where’d ya get the Canadian tuxedo?” One of the few movies I’m not ashamed to admit I saw multiple times in the theater (as opposed to The Rock or The Cable Guy).

    Super Troopers is definitely a vastly underrated comedy. It does in one film what Reno 911 has failed to do in 5+ seasons.

    That is such an astute observation, Nathan. So fucking true. I feel like I’m sitting in an art house movie theater and you are narrating the home movies of my life.
