A friend convinced me to watch it last night, and I admit, I laughed more than a few times. It’s dark, let me tell you. So dark, that without explaining the situation leading up to it, you will laugh as multiple children under 16 are gunned down in mass murder. Hopefully you will cringe while you laugh, but it has comic purpose. If I tell you it’s in the middle of a scene that is a gigantic comment about America’s obsession with gun ownership, with everybody on the street packing heat, and
firing on everyone else at random, would that make any difference?
The opening scene is in the cockpit of a jet airliner, with two arab terrorists discussing how many virgins they’ll get when they kill themselves, while people pound on the cockpit door and swear at them. The one guy says 99, the other 100. One calls Osama (did I mention this movie is from 2007, when GWB was president, and before OBL was killed)? If you can handle the outrageous violence in the name of comedy, this movie is actually quite funny. I particularly liked Dave Foley’s deal.
Directed by Uwe Boll. With Zack Ward, Dave Foley, Verne Troyer, Chris Coppola. In the ironically named city of Paradise, a recently laid-off loser teams up with his cult-leading uncle to steal a peculiar bounty of riches from their local amusement park; somehow, the recently arrived Taliban have a similar focus, but a far more sinister intent.
