I watched a little bit of the Academy Awards broadcast on Sunday. Yawn. As usual, the only movies I had seen (aside from Pride & Prejudice) were the ones nominated for special effects and technical awards.
Ignore the horrible reviews at Rotten Tomatoes (but note that the users gave it a 37% rating compared to the critics' 8%). Instead, look at what Pajiba had to say. That's a lot closer to how I feel about this woefully underappreciated masterpiece of pioneering grossout humor for women.
I'll be the first to admit that this movie is not for everyone. Judging by the critics' reactions, it's easy to draw the conclusion that one group it's certainly not for is men. No, this is a deliberately tasteless comedy just for the gals.
And it's hilarious! My sister and I watched it on the recommendation of one of her friends, and laughed ourselves silly. I'm not saying there wasn't a bottle of wine involved, but that only served as a minor enhancement to the viewing experience.
If you're interested in seeing a crude comedy that only a women could think up, seriously, go rent this movie. I may have to buy a copy and keep it next to my DVD of Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death.
