InAPPropriate Comedy (2013)
I did not have very high expectations for InAPPropriate Comedy. However, I was a little curious as to why Oscar winner Adrien Brody would have any part in the making of this movie. The fact that Brody was in it was what made me give the film a chance. Lindsay Lohan and Rob Schneider are also both in the movie and that lead me to believe InAPPropriate Comedy was likely doomed.
The movie is not really a movie at all; it is rather a series of skits. There are multiple categories pertaining to the different skits which are displayed as APPs on a computer screen. Most of the skits are parodies of movies, television shows, or famous events. A man on screen cycles through and selects the different APPs on the computer and as he selects them, they are what are shown next in the film. Each APP is either racist, raunchy, out of control, blatantly wrong, or otherwise inappropriate.
The film is obviously meant to be inappropriate and it succeeds in achieving its goal. It is like a glorified dumber, more vulgar version of the television show Saturday Night Live.
Some of the skits have their moments of humor, while others are mostly pretty awful in every possible way.
In Adrien Brody’s defense, the skits that he is in are pretty funny. They are crude, but funny. However, it just goes to show that Brody’s career has plummeted since his success in The Pianist (2002). It is laughable and a little sad that he would even be in a movie like this one.
Given all of the bad media that constantly surrounds Lindsay Lohan, her part in the film was actually okay. Her performance was short and sweet and somewhere in between good and bad.
Overall, InAPPropriate Comedy is just plain bad. There are not enough laughs in the movie to make up for how appalling the rest of the film is. It is inappropriate in almost every way possible. Wasting your time watching this movie would be inappropriate.
I rate this movie a 1 on a scale of 1-10.
Buy, rent, or run? RUN!
Grown Ups 2 (2013)
Can Adam Sandler do us all a favor and stop making unwatchable garbage. He has not made a good movie for years. Arguably his best movie in the last 7 years was Just Go with It (2011) and that is not saying much. Click (2006) was probably his last good movie. The majority of the movies that he made before Click were all hilarious in their own way. After Click, all of Sandler’s movies turned into pure excrement.
Was the first Grown Ups (2010) not bad enough? Do we really need to be subjected to a sequel?
In the first Grown Ups, Adam Sandler got all of his almost washed-up, aging comedian friends together (Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Tim Meadows, Dan Patrick, Colin Quinn, Maya Rudolph, Blake Clark, Norm MacDonald, Jonathan Loughran, and Dennis Dugan)to make a not so funny, not very family friendly, family comedy also with the likes of Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Steve Buscemi, and Sandler’s wife Jackie Sandler and 2 daughters Sadie Sandler and Sunny Sandler.
So now 3 years later, he brought most of them all back together again and made a sequel. Is it safe to assume that they are all actually washed-up this time since they are back for more? He had to try to top the first one, so he added Taylor Lautner, Milo Ventimiglia, Andy Samberg, David Henrie, Alexander Ludwig, Steve Austin, Taran Killam, Nick Swardson, Shaquille O’Neal, Cheri Oteri, Erin Heatherton, and Melanie Hutsell to the mix.
I can’t believe Sandler pulled it off, but this movie looks worse than the first one. I will most certainly skip this film in the theatre and I won’t even waste my money at the Redbox. It would have to be free for me to watch this, and even that will be risky.
Dennis Dugan directed both Grown Ups movies.
The trash will be picked up on, I mean the movie will release on 7/12/13.
