Couldn't agree more, RoG. Here's my review:

When GB didn't make it to theaters I thought it was just mishandled by Fox marketing, then I found out it was mishandled by the director.

Good:
-Mike White as Dusty. Essentially a Napoleon clone, but if the movie had been about this "Guardian Angel" it would have been much more enjoyable.
-The very effeminate character of Brutus was wonderfully performed and hilarious to behold in the book/fantasy sequences.
-Chevalier had a unique and off-beat accent, but was given few opportunities to use it to induce laughter.

Bad:
-BATHROOM HUMOR! Seriously, this movie could not go 5 minutes with mentioning or showing fecal matter, gonads, mammary cannons or vomit.
-Attempts at quirky character behavior were much too obvious and heavy handed to even cause a giggle of the "what a weird-o" variety.
-Sam Rockwell's Bronco was just a sad, lifeless, hick stereotype.
-Hector Jimenez, who was wonderful as Esqueleto in Nacho Libre, is terribly annoying throughout this story with his stupid lip pout/curl face.
-The main character of Benjamin is absolutely without any type of quirk or character trait to make him even noticeable in the story. He's practically invisible! He exists simply to attract the strange supporting players and move the plot along, but provides no interest at all the the audience.

When this movie was playing at only one theater in Los Angeles for a week I actually considered driving out from Arizona just to see it, but now I am so glad I didn't. What a waste. Jared Hess, redeem yourself. Give us something worthy of your quirky talents.

Hoju, you actually thought something in Nacho Libre was good?




Wow...

NACHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Come on, Nick. I mean, a movie that contains the line "I hate all the orphans in the whole world!" has goodness written all over it!
