Do you remember that scene in Dumb and Dumber where Jeff Daniels licks a frozen metal pole and finds that his tongue gets stuck to it? Then to free him, he has his head pulls backwards with his tongue stretching like a rubber band? Remember that scene? Well the movie 21 And Over basically does the same joke, but instead of a tongue getting stuck to something and being stretched, it’s a man’s penis…not that it could be a woman’s penis…but the point is that one scene pretty much sums up the level of humour in 21 And Over.
From the writers of The Hangover, expectations are suitably high, but the question as it is with so many filmmakers, have they followed up their hit with another hit, tried to recreate past glories, or gone off on some weird path with something totally unexpected?
In this video review I take a light hearted look at the movie, give my usual nerdy observations that would have even the best tempered film maker gritting their teeth and saying ‘Just watch the movie’ and most importantly I give all of you my verdict on whether this film is awesome or awful.
The film stars Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, and Justin Chon and is out on May 5th.
If you missed them, please check out my other recent articles with vids in of coverage of The Iron Man 3 Press Conference, an interview with Mark Harris about new film The Broken, and similar reviews of Oblivion starring Tom Cruise and my review of Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler. Coming up shortly I’ll have an exclusive video interview with Mathieu Kassovitz (Actor in Amélie, Munich and director or Gothika and Babylon AD) about his new film Rebellion. In a couple of weeks I’ll be covering Star Trek Into Darkness so be sure to check that out and anything else in between.
In the meantime check out the video and please share, rate, retweet and post your comments below!
