A detestable film that forces us to follow for eighty-eight minutes a couple of hateful psychopaths with a sick story that wants to be a very dark comedy and make fun of their gruesome atrocities - but everything is just too much bad taste to be remotely funny.
A very strange film, like an Indie dramedy "Natural Born Killers." There are some very cool stylistic flourishes in here, but I don't know how realized of a film it is. It wants you to be connected to these psychopaths when I was mainly confused on how they are how they are. It's a good script, just perhaps never too coherent in its intentions.
Sightseers is a low budget indie dark "comedy", but its more just a dark movie and not much laughs. There are some nice themes slowly built in, but ultimately it doesn't go anywhere. It starts off good enough, but quickly runs out of steam, even though the attempt is admirable and the concept is quirky.
The movie has one of the most annoying, offensive and just plain unbearable character named Tina ever written by a woman and played with utter disgust by a woman, Tina is way distasteful than Meg Ryan's character in In The Cut and that's saying something. Atleast Jar Jar was funny in his own bizarre way. this one is just hateful.
After a promising start, the subtle jokes become less so, and for me, by trying to be darker looses it's purpose. Granted some moments are right on target, however one Episode on Fawlty Towers is more accurate about British culture, and funnier.
"Sightseers is an original film but a bit bizarre. This is a black comedy but I did not laugh anywhere as much as I was maybe intended to. It is definitely not for everyone. The couple are oddly likable, but the script goes to no effort to make us sympathise with or for them. Their actions are never anything but horrible."
S I C K!! But love it. It's got no boundaries and you want a movie that makes you say "That's so wrong", this is it. Choice tunes (FGTH "The Power of Love", End score of Tainted love)..... gotta watch the end.
