San Ber-NA-dee-O's in the house! Ok, this was a lame parody but it had its moments. The stereotypes abound in this spoof on the "club scene" in downtown 'Bernadino. Definitely geared towards young adults, yet older teens and more mature adults will find parts of it funny. I question whether this one should have made it to the big screen or went straight to dvd. I found it hard to believe that the lead was underage and went through so much to get a fake ID-he looked like he was 35! I think, with a more powerful lead, this may have ended up a more effective comedy. Another example of where bad casting ruins a film (and this one didn't have much to spare!). The stereotypes are funny, with a "Spicoli" surfer character who was a dead ringer for young Sean Penn in looks but updated with a lame club theme and bad acting, and a young "Ludacris" look-a-like who lacked any rhythm whatsoever. It doesn't really stand out from the string of lame comedies other than some really outrageous stereotypes that are a bit novel and the only reason I gave it the rating I did. I admit I did laugh a few times, especially at the pushy side-kick who is always getting his friend in trouble. Even if you are not a club frequenter, you will relate to the obnoxious caricatures in the film-we all know these people and hope you aren't one of them!
You will be really pissed off if you pay full price for this one. If you like this type of film, or are in your late teens, go to the matinee. The rest of you may want to catch it on dvd, it's not that memorable.
