    I've never seen a movie with such an unlikeable protagonist.

    ★½

    I only watched this because it's on Netflix outside the US, but I am truly fascinated at how every Tim Story movies feels like it was made at the same time as the original Barbershop. Sam Jackson's comedic timing is as great as ever (has he been relegated to just being the "motherfucker" motherfucker so long that watching him have fun felt fresh to me?) but it's wasted on this wildly regressive trash flick.

    Brandon Scott-Jones and Betty Gilpan are absolute stars. Bowen Yang and Sandy Honig are underutilized treasures. The rest of this movie is not for me!

    ★½

    Peak 2000s cable comedy. None of it makes sense. It's a series of self-contained gags and scenes stitched together into a vague 70s "stodgy-teacher-hates-the-cool-kids" plot, designed so that anybody just flipping through channels can see enough of it to go "oh that seems fun."

    And it is! Kind of! It's also extremely problematic and offensive in almost every way, and does not hold up very much as anything other than a benchmark for what black comedy was in the early 2000s. Method & Red are charming as fuck, tho.

    they try to spell out the metaphor right in front of you both before and after the short but... it doesn't track with the animation very well?
