Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle made me think that both me and America were ready to hear from Jack Black again. He was omnipresent and annoying for several years, but then he laid low and came back with gusto.
Given this, I wanted to delve into some films from his career I hadn't seen. And I'm from Orange County. So why not?
He's pretty good here. A lot of the OC stuff is spot on, but plenty isn't. Hate to be a homer, but Orange County as a geographical location is all the stereotypes you've heard about, sure, but it's also way funnier than that. Not everyone has a Mexican maid, for example. But some people do...
The dated humor, even the slut-shaming, is actually kind of funny here. If that makes sense. It probably doesn't.
Anyway, I'm high but this was fine. Maybe below par, I'm not sure. But I didn't hate watching it.
