Our friends Bob Odenkirk and Will Forte made this movie. This movie got absolutly raped and pissed on in the press. Check out Rotten Tomatoes.com. And it's disgusting and wrong. This movie has more laughs than any movie I've seen in a long time. Is it stupid? yes. Is it flawed? yes. Is is silly? yes. yes! Thank God for a scrappy comedy with JOKES!! There are actual JOKES in this movie.
And Forte. Forte is a revelaation in this movie. THere are moments in SNL where you get a peek at what makes this guy so talented and funny. But it's on full display here. THere is so much weird heart and sincertly and total commitment in his character through every second of the film. It remided me of the best of Steve Martin or even Gene Wilder. The movie has a different rythym than most comedies out there lately, so maybe that explains why these idiot critics couldn't wrap their heads around it. Historically critics have always resisted silly comedy. This is silly at it's most silly. It's a thumb up the nose, which also must turn critics off...critics whose tastes have been trained to think own wilson and vince vaughn equal comedy....MAYBE that weirdo Steve Carell. Maybe.
Anyway, I think if you like our show, you'll be on the side of brothers solomon. I'm not saying you're going to walk away declaring it the best movie you've ever seen. But you will laugh and you will laugh often.
