10.03.06Cinemark Pflugerville Finally saw this after spending all of Fantastic Fest being the guy in the group who has to cover his ears... maybe it was seeing it in a theater only holding 5 other people, or maybe it was the picture going out a half hour in and having to wait 30 minutes for the theater to fix it (after showing a few minutes of the film with sound only), or maybe it was the overhype... but I dunno. I thought this one was just barely better than the first (which I laughed at several times when I saw it in the theater and haven't had any urge to see since). A few gags were creative, and I couldn't help but laugh at a few places when nuts were punched or kicked... but it ultimately left me with a hollow feeling I get a lot with TV shows turned movies: is this it? I laughed a lot harder at Borat's funniest moments.

I'd hate to be accused of hating comedy though. I want to stress that I enjoyed myself... it was just that I had higher hopes. And I never get how they just throw away celebrity bits... I think I saw Mike Judge for like 48 frames, Luke Wilson popped up for 2 seconds during the end credits... maybe it's a skateboarder thing where getting c- or b-level celebrities to be in a scene of your video isn't too big a deal... and if their bits aren't that funny then I guess it's good their relegated to outtake-level presences... but both with this one and the first I got a sense that there was like a 2-hour movie here culled down to 90 minutes for pacing. If the DVDs have all the excised bits then I am whining for nothing...

so favorite gags... The taxi ride was pretty cool just for how many layers it had... I'm always a fan of the old people stuff, both in the last one but even moreso in this one. Great use of that Peaches song over the old balls gag. I was seriously cringing with the steve-o human bait and the anaconda ball room stuff... As usual it's got near-porn amounts of male nakedness... i guess the naked-is-funnier rule still works... but it seemed like they liked it a bit too much. I still worry for Bam Margera's mental state and think he should be medicated...

It's kind of a guilty laughing though... like I am now one step closer to Idiocracy... which has already become quoatable around town (hey, i like money too! we should hang out sometime)... i am literally laughing at a man just because he's just vomited or fallen. oh well.
