Comments– I heard very little about this movie when it was in theatres, and really just picked it up on a whim at Blockbuster the other day. I liked it a lot more than I probably should have. It was very, very funny, but not quite as funny as The Hangover like the box claims. There were points where the guys were trying just a bit too hard to be funny, and even though I still laughed at those points, I could tell it was being forced a little bit. These were only minor moments, though, and not too detrimental to the whole of the film. What I really liked about this one was it’s story; I found it really funny, and interesting throughout. I loved the characters, and just thoroughly enjoyed the film. Bridgette completely agrees and liked it better than The Hangover all-around. Great-Incredible.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
