Charming and funny. Well worth your time.,
This review is from: Tucker and Dale vs. Evil [DVD] (2011) (DVD)
Tucker & Dale are two charming hillbillies, happy within themselves but shy out of their comfort zone.
Their lives are invaded by a group of preppy college students who, through a series of unfortunate events believe them to be hillbillies of the murdering kind. The film is a parody of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre genre, something it nods to on more than one occasion.
Tucker & Dale are very likeable characters and you will find yourself rooting for them. Dale in particular has a very sweet relationship with one girls and it's charming to watch. But the real point of this film is the comedy and it does this very well. There's a part of me that wants to point out that the misunderstandings that lead to the humour are quite slapstick and sometimes you can see them coming. But this isn't a criticism, there is no arguing with the fact that the film is laugh-out-loud funny for a good amount of time, it's just an observation.
Good comedies have been thin on the ground this year so this is a real gem. Watch it, you'll like it.
