VERDICT – 0/5

 
PROS –
N/A

 

CONS –
1) The expectation was a Rated-R puppet black comedy of Sausage Party (2016) league. This movie is nothing of that sort.
2) An ordinary murder-plot with puppets – a sheer waste of time.

A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2018)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –
1) Will Forte as Doug Kenney – The Wolf Of Lampoon Street.

 

Cons –
1) A futile attempt to recreate the magic of Man On The Moon but David Wain is no Miloš Forman
2) Too many characters, too little time.
3) This biopic follows the same rise and fall formula as used in Goodfellas, Scarface and The Wolf Of Wall Street.

 

Quote –
Tom Snyder: Mr. Kenney, it’s a fine line between being clever and offensive, isn’t it?
Douglas Kenney: Look, if I could just say something in defense of National Lampoon for one moment…
Tom Snyder: Please.
Douglas Kenney: We come from a tradition of truth-tellers. A long time ago, there was someone else society found offensive. They thought that what he did was radical – dangerous. They persecuted him… and eventually killed him. Of course, I’m referring to Dracula.
