TEN Stars. Is this the most magnificently absurd film ever made ?
on 11 November 2012
I wasn't drunk, honest.
Read the packaging for the description.
And giggle yourself into a stupor. The Sarah Palin-esque President. The second Generation NAZIs thinking they bring peace. The United Nations spoof. So many figures and caricatures lampooned.
Doctor Strangelove for a new generation, perhaps ? I know, not in that league for satire, "Gentlemen; you can't fight in here. This is the war room !" will not be beaten but this is truly, amazingly funny, albeit heavy handed. Sometimes I don't see the satire others do in movies; maybe this is just heavy handed enough to get through my Brummie skull, but it's a long time since I laughed this much.
I don't know what to say really, I've never seen anything funnier-except perhaps positive reviews for "Titanic".
I don't know how many times it will have to be watched to get all the gags; like "Airplane", there is so much on show, so many sly howlers.
Another example of how CGI can let a team with a brilliant concept and little money put a work of sheer genius out. While with ***t like Transformers, no idea and buckets of cash produces only poo.
A bad taste classic.
The extended version adds a few enjoyable bits, but the main reason to get it is to reward the sheer nerve that called it the "Dictator's Cut".
