I guess they wanted
to put perky kickboy Jackie Chan in something. Okay, better find a
comedic sidekick? Well, if you call Owen Wilson's character Roy "which
way did he go George which way did he go?" O'Bannon actually
funny that is. He was suppose to be...which just makes you feel bad
for all involved in this colossal western portion of horse dung.
The American Indians get him high-that was kinda fun. But then they call him "Man-Who Fights-In Dress" and all the stupid Tom Arnold-ish obvious and murky comedy slaps you you in the face again. I got two words for ya- FART BUBBLES! They actually resorted to fart bubbles for a laugh. Not only gross and sophomoric but anything but comedic funnery. Mel Brook's Blazing Saddles circa 1978 (?) was the last time fart were truly funny on screne.
Sure, I'm bitter about no stud-a-matics being within 300 yards of this film. Heck, I need eye candy at some point. I am, after all, only human and Chan or Wilson...shudder. I snuck into Gladiator on the way out to shake off this ugly and quite frankly dull duo. Say sianara boys this 'causin this here movie show you've fandangelled wont be in theaters long 'tall pardners!
Lo-mein with pea pod and bean curd. Extra order of Saki.
