07.05.24Internet This popped up on Youtube remastered in HD and it's been since original airing since I've seen it. I remembered thinking it was hilarious. In short, this was a documentary/film from the Man Show crew about these two guys who've been pulling pranks on their friend Perry for years. With Kimmel and Carolla's help they set him up in a "real" hollywood movie that's an excuse to put Perry in funny circumstances. It's still hard for me to believe that Perry didn't pick up on any of it but he's oblivious in a many funny ways. Even moreso since people like Dane Cook and Laura Silverman and Tom Kenny play roles like the film's producer, a PA, or a costume designer. Plus they all have blatantly famous names that Perry never picks up on. Actually, the level of absurdity that Perry never picks up on is basically the entire movie. Like when Adam Carolla runs into them on the lot wearing a gladiator outfit saying he's doing a gladiator dog buddy comedy called Air Caligula.

Alas, I didn't think it was quite as hilarious as my memories of 20 years ago. I did laugh when they hit Perry in the face with a basketball out of nowhere but I attribute that to a much lower brain stem reflex that never tires of farts and groin shots. I suspect seeing it for the first time is key since so much of the stuff they put Perry through is so unbelievable and the stuff he goes along with is crazy, but even half-remembering the gags... I remember them more crazy somehow. Like I thought the shit in the garbage bin was like sewage not just manure. Maybe it's a SD/HD thing, probably it's my brain juicing the memory.

I think it's still a good movie, I just didn't laugh as much as I did 20 years ago. Maybe that says more about me than the movie though?
