Foot Fist Way

He Says:

I'm sure I'll learn to love this movie and eventually quote it to the point of losing friends. However, I really don't know how many times I'll need to watch it to realize that dream. Danny McBride is the star of this movie and I'm sure many to come, but are we still yearning for more of the same character thrown into different sets. McBride plays the role of a pathetic Tae Kwon Do instructor in a strip mall down south, married to a trashy wife, and is an all-around grown-up loser. That pretty much sums it up. What happens in between the start and end is worth your Saturday morning recovery time lying on the couch in your sweats, but other than that eh…check it out OnDemand.

This movie starring Danny McBride (the hilarious drug dealer with a neck brace from Pineapple Express) has me still a little dumbfounded - we watched it 2 days ago. I can't decide if I liked it or not. It's one of those movies that the first time you watch it there are parts that are clearly funny and other moments that are so awkward you're not sure what to do. Kind of like the first time I watched Napoleon Dynamite - I'm thinking "this is so stupid it could either be really funny or really stupid." Danny McBride's character Fred Simmons is a sad one at best and I think more of his patheticness shines through than his humor - although he does have some pretty funny one liners. Maybe I'll find more laughs the second time around, if I can muster up the energy to watch it again.
