Guess Who Reviews
I personally find watching these stories make me wanna kick someone's ass for simply being rude as ****. Fortunately, Bernie Mac (who I didn't think was the least bit talented) is dead...so there's no repercussions simply saying let's hope his utterly douche character in the movie is no reflection of his real personality. As I've mentioned before reviewing Crossroads, knowing Zoe helps when watching the movie. Though her character should ideally support Ashton more, she's the only real level head in sight. And of course she's easy on the eyes.
Bernie's dinosaur character stomps through central Tokyo of common sensibilities and without his arcane vulgarity there'd be no contrast for humor. Such is the necessary mechanics for comedy which is much harder than most think.
It's for this reason that the ongoing offensiveness of this movie keeps you watching and makes you laugh if you let it. As Ashton did in THAT 70s SHOW, he continues to evolve his confidence in wearing dresses and anything else he needs to do to get a laugh -- something I admire. The truly disturbing wrinkle in this story is the poorly-created recipe for Zoe's disastrous reaction to Ashton's headless chicken act trying to dot every "I" and cross every "T" and keep all the plates turning as though the work a man does trying to keep women happy (which is nearly impossible) deserves no respect or appreciation.
It's poorly written and -- let's hope to god -- inaccurate.
Still the movie is worth watching and funny in that "offensive on every social level" way.
Let's hope people like this don't exist and if they do we never get engaged to their kid
