Critic Reviews for Fubar: Balls to the Wall
Though the energy flags a little in the film's second half, overall the comedy feels nervy and original.
As with the 2002 movie that introduced us to the pair, director Michael Dowse (who co-wrote the script with Lawrence and Spence) makes it clear that these are loveable losers.
The FUBAR films are an experiment - can two knuckleheads really get by doing nothing but partying and drinking beer? And is it believable? You bet it is.
I've got a bunch of Canadian friends, and everything about this film feels so real, despite being so over-the-top insane.
...a clever, complicated comedy which plays like a performance from a far off distant galaxy.
Gets better as it goes along, although I was never rolling on the floor with laughter.
Audience Reviews for Fubar: Balls to the Wall
The long awaited sequel to Canadian cult film Fubar is a non stop laugh fest filled with insane moments of craziness, beer drinking and heavy metal. Our heroes Terry and Dean head to Fort McMurray, Alberta to find new jobs because their party leader Tron has hooked them up. Terry finds love in Trish, a bouncer at a local strip bar, while Dean tries to screw the system by purposely breaking his leg to collect worker's Compensation. Unfortunately for Dean, he discovers that his testicle cancer is back and they'll have to remove his other testicle. While Dean goes into depression, Terry seems all happy with a new life ahead of him, as he will be getting married with Trish.
Fubar 2 is an extremely funny film by director Michael Dowse and like the first Fubar, this one is destined to become a Canadian Cult Classic.
The film is just as funny as the first one, except now, the film is a bit more theatrical, meaning it feels less like a documentary on the banger sub culture. Still the film has all the elements that made the first one so great. .This film redeems Canadian cinema after the very painful film Passchendaele directed by Paul Gross. Fubar 2 is the definitive redeeming film as it erases the mistakes made by Gross. Paul Spence and David Lawrence play Dean and Terry respectfully. If you loved the first Fubar, then you'll enjoy this second film.
