Very Funny Movie" I loved this movie: Jason Lee, just has bad lick until almost the end movie. Just a great movie to watch.
If you like Crispin Glover and/or Jason Lee So you're a big fan of Crispin Glover, especially in his wilder and more eccentric roles. And you like Jason Lee.
But... this sounds like it could be a really dumb, banal comedy. And the reviews aren't so hot. So should you bother with it?
That's what I was mulling over before I finally bit the bullet and rented it. And I'm glad I did.
First and foremost, Glover and Lee are fantastic. They carry the movie. They're in top form here, and they create two wonderful bozo characters.
There is some very funny material, and some great, even classic, lines. I laughed out loud several times. And the story zips right along, doesn't get tedious or slow.
Having said that, it's a pretty conventional, routine storyline, despite many detours into inspired craziness. And some of it is kinda dumb or obvious.
This isn't risky or edgy material. But it is fun, funny viewing, with outstanding weirdo performances by Glover and Lee.Don't drop everything to rush and see this. This movie features Crispin Glover (an undertaker) and Jason Lee (an unemployed used car salesman) as two smalltime crooks looking to make a big score to get out of a small town in texas, and get to big time las vegas. Sure enough, these two have all the man power, but non of the luck and brains to get it done...or are they being under estimated. There is a lot of dark humor, and has several funny moments, but just not a consistent flow. This could have been more, but wasn't. Good to watch once, but then return it for others to see. Drop this movie Jason Lee and Crispin Glover play two small-time crooks in a small-time Texas town (that looks remarkably like Austin). They dig up a dead woman to steal her necklace and end up "kidnapping" her and holding her for ransom from her husband. Supposedly, hilarity ensues, but I must have missed that part.
Crispin Glover creates a very believable, original, and funny small-town hick, but it feels like Jason Lee isn't even trying, and the movie definitely suffers from that.
There's a good amount of gratuitous nudity in several scenes that take place in the local strip club (The Mean-Eyed Pussy Cat) and even in the morgue. If you're looking for nudity go for this movie. If you're looking for anything else, don't bother.
Overall this movie moves along slowly and without too many laughs. I checked it out because it was filmed in Austin and I was interested, but it's really not worth the time.Undertaker humor This is a cross between a fun-loving NATIONAL LAMPOON party flick and a black comedy. I'm still un-decided exactly where it fits in between the two. The story is certainly an interesting concept, albeit creepy. Melissa Keller is certainly sexy and the few sequences where she is "alive" are quite memorable. However, these scenes could have been done better, if you ask me.
If you're into comedies about people who brush up against the mob (or mobster-like characters), this one might be worth a watch. If you have a morbid sense of humor this one might also be worth checking out.
