His roommate, Rubin Paulo Costanzo accidentally mails the sex tape to Tiffany. This beginning of the film is hilarious, even the scene when they find out the wrong tape was mailed. So Josh, Rubin, Josh's best friend E. The adventure portion is classic road material.
They crash a party at a black fraternity, donate sperm, crash Kyle's car, among other things. Aside from the situations being hilarious, the characters need to be awesome too. Josh is Meyer's usual geek that he always makes work. I don't mind, Stifler's awesome, E.
Rubin is a cool dude and really smart. He is awesome with physics and helps Josh pass his Ancient philosophy exam. Kyle is an ugly wimp who learns to stand up for himself. Tom Green's character's name is Barry Manilow. His obsession with seeing the snake eat the mouse is priceless. The film ends well and funnily too. You can't really say that this movie achieves the status of excellence or anything. This is about enjoying college life. It is just a simple film to make people laugh, without insulting their intelligence.
The basic plot of the film is fantastically simple. Josh and his girlfriend Tiffany have been together forever. To maintain a long distance relationship through college, Josh makes a video to send to her telling her how much he misses her.
Later on that evening he makes another video tape of himself and Beth, a fellow student at Ithaca, having sex. You guessed it, the wrong tape is mailed to Tiffany. Josh and his 3 buddies Rubin, E. L and Kyle set off to retrieve it. For the first time in a long while, this film is entirely honest and not at all patronising.
If you're sick of films condemning sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll then your time has come. Though slightly disturbing in parts, this film was able to carry off what was a potential cliche.
The almost apathetic mood was perfect. Whilst some films try to deal with indepth emotions about each decision made, 'Road trip' overlooks everything that we overlook.
It's OK for someone to steal a bus from a blind chick or exploit a rich kid, because your objective is the only thing that matters. The casting was slightly daring with a film debut for Paulo Costanzo and a first time lead for DJ Qualls but the characters were entirely believable and developed well throughout.
I think it's best not to read too much into this movie because it's essentially about having fun. Which is what it is. Quinoa 3 June And since it is in that arena, it gets a good reputation though doesn't live up to it's precedors. I found the plot alone humorous- College guy Breckin Meyer from Ithica, who is dating a girl Rachel Blanchard in Austin since he was little, tapes a sex tape with another girl by accident and mails it to her, so he must retrieve it with his friends Seann W.
The Always hilarious especially here Tom Green brings us along in this story as he tells the story to a tour group and also includes himself as a experimentist and snake feeder with mice.
The wackiness and sickness in this film brings out the best and it is dead pan funny. One of the best comedies of the year. A hilarious trip jellyneckr 19 March What to do? On the way, they get into some hysterical situations and give great comedic performances.
There are a lot of road movies, but this is the very best one. This is a typical movie that's perfect to watch to kill some time with. It's by no means a great, or highly memorable movie but it's still a movie that serves its purpose. Even though I highly enjoyed watching this movie, it wasn't as funny as expected. The movie could had really used some more comical sequences and situations.
There were many missed opportunities in the movie but still that doesn't of course mean that the movie is bad.
The biggest strength of the movie is its fun feeling. There are some great comical moments, although not as many and as constant as I expected and hoped for. Another great thing about the movie are the characters.
Breckin Meyer might not had been the best choice for the main character but all the other characters are simply great to watch, especially DJ Qualls. Tom Green's antics were not always funny simply because he isn't a great actor. It also was perhaps a bit too much distracting from the main storyline. It's a great movie for teenager to watch and it has some typical teenagers humor in it, which I'm sure they'll find hilarious at times. This works best if you are the first person to point out the fart.
Rather than waiting for someone else to notice it, notice it first. Point it out, and look at the person next to you and point out that they just farted. Or, better yet, blame someone who doesn't know you're blaming them. The kid in the chair ahead of you who hasn't smelled the fart or heard it or the teacher who just walked past.
Who should you blame? If you're struggling for a suspect, just pick the person closest to you. Walk behind. Or make an excuse and go to the restroom or your locker when you sense that a fart is coming on. Try to go to the bathroom right before class. You will need to be in a group of at least three people for people to not be sure where to put the blame. Go outside. Obviously, the outside air will more closely dissipate the smell. The worst place to fart is in a small and enclosed space, such as an elevator.
Method 2 of Buy a flatulence deodorizer. Yes, believe it or not, there is a medical supply website that has created an ultimate scented pad. The goal of the Flatulence Deodorizer is to camouflage the bad smells that might come out of your body.
The same company produces scented pillows. Use perfume. Buy a small roll-on perfume stick you can keep in your purse. Light a match. The reason is that the smell from a fart comes from hydrogen sulfur.
This will ignite the sulfur in the air, and mask it. Method 3 of Avoid carbonated drinks and chewing gum. Farts are fun and farting is fun too. I love the smell of my farts: they smell like roses. Im with you on this one. Y am I not surprise u think thatyour the guy who dosent wipe when takes a dump right vulgarman. No, you have me confused with someone else. I have heard many people express their disdain for children.
I can understand that to a point, as I am typically not fond of children myself — please do not wave those photographs of your children and brag about them to me, as I most likely do not care despite knowing how proud you are of them — but I certainly do not hate or loathe them.
We were all children once. The question posed in this title does not imply that I have an answer to the conundrum of traveling with children who behave badly — I personally believe the answer is somewhere between both camps who are staunchly adamant about their positions…. Kid sitting in his seat, screaming his lungs out is a comfort issue, not a safety issue. Painful, but there are earplugs. Kid running around the plane unsupervised, climbing on top of the seats, etc, is a safety issue.
In event of turbulence, kid will get injured and has a possibility of injuring other passengers. Airline stuff should deal with the safety issue. If parents can not control their child themselves ie kid is not sitting in their seat, and climbing on the seats unsupervised , and parents did not bring a baby sitter with them, well, perhaps the child and the parents should continue the trip under different circumstances.
If kid is screaming out of their lungs, but otherwise is sitting in their seat, regretfully, reasonable options are ear plugs and asking to move to a different seat. If screaming kid is in a premium seat, operational downgrade, kid and the parents should be asked to move to the back of economy, and refunded the difference in price.
The fact that mother wants to have wifi for iPad, presumably, so that the kid can amuse themselves with youtube, is not a sign of strong parent. I had to sit through 3 hours of a small 7 year old boy screaming and crying. The mother and father said it was his first flight and thought it funny. I had a headache before the flight.
The attendants did nothing, even though several passengers complained, suggested giving him something to read, food etc. Huge fines or special flights for adults with kids. But when that kind of behavior interferes with safety the crew should have taken action. The fact the child was incapable of staying in his seat and crawling on the top of the seats is hardly safe. I was on an international flight Virgin to LHR with an autistic child about 7 yrs old?
He screamed so hard and started to flail and hit the person next to him not his mom and caused as slight bloody nose. The stewardess finally said turn on the video and gave the injured passenger ice and a cloth as we were taxiing to the runway. During the flight he refused to sit in his seat even during turbulence, ran up and down the aisles when the seat belt sign was on. At one point service was disbanded due to turbulence and all of us returned to our seats, except the kid who was screaming and moving into the aisle and when dragged back started hitting the bulkhead wall from the floor.
When someone asked could you please turn it down or use headphones she said he refused to wear headphones. We even landed with the kid sitting on the floor of the bulkhead.
After the man got hit we should have turned around. I am sorry but why hundred of people had to suffer and unsafe conditions were tolerated escapes me. Well, it's not that weird. There are mentions of the end of the world, which did remind me of Donnie Darko, but that's about as far as it goes. Daydream Nation is a film that has too many things going on, it confuses itself as to what story it wants to tell. As painful as it is awkward, this is one movie I will not be watching again.
This title wants so desperately to be something it's not, which is profound. While aiming to be the next American Beauty meets Juno, it plays out like the novel of a smarmy teen who just KNOWS that he's smarter than anyone else and that's why he's unpopular. One saving grace is the performance of Reece Thompson, who handles his performance as a tormented, burned-out druggie deftly.
On second thought, Andie MacDowell is also a high note as a relatively flat character but refreshingly sweet and supportive mom.
Still, I'd give this movie a pass. Daydream Nation is one of those coming of age movies, which seems so real and beautiful that you want to watch it for longest you can.
The director has nicely incorporated coming of age drama with serial killer on the loose and industrial fire burning. Daydream Nation takes us to three different kinds of lives. Firstly into a young city girl Caroline who moves to a small town with her dad but unable to adjust with local teenagers as they are not as smart or intellectual like her. Secondly, a lonely druggy boy Thurston who thinks, he never got anything right and always looks for something good to happen in his life.
The collision of these three unlikely lives in the backdrop of serial killer on the loose and industrial fire burning is "Daydream Nation". Kat Dennings gave an honest stealer performance, she made her character realist and believable.
It's amazing to see her bringing humor, sorrow and bitchiness to the character with so much depth. Reece Thompson has always done something unusual and indie movies lovers defiantly know him from Rocket Science with Anna Kendrick. Josh Lucas is always the pretty man who gets the girls easily, even this time it happens but it also shows the other side of the perfect looking man.
Overall a gripping coming of age movie, which will leave a good long lasting effect. Don't believe the obviously faked reviews; this movie is garbage firearms trainer 3 June This is just one more in a long line of boring, filmed-in-BC, movies-with-a-message. Don't believe all the four- and five-star fake reviews from the cast and crew; it is formulaic garbage.
Like everything else coming out of BC these days, it uses one has-been actor Andie MacDowell and a bunch of and year-olds, playing teenagers. Wanna get your actors to appear edgy? Portray them hotboxing in a stranger's dad's van. Wanna see what the term "phoning in your performance" really means? Watch Andie MacDowall, who very obviously did this one only for the money. If you keep waiting for this movie to get better, trust me; it never does. FilmMan47 23 July May i ask why this was not a soft core movie the makers were so desperate to strip Kat Dennings naked but she is just one beautiful lady the audience wont like it hence they gave her a bad role which i say she nailed it perfectly.
The moody Caroline Wexler moves from the big city to a small town where the kids do a lot of drugs and are inbreed losers with 6 toes. The story at times is third person, at other times Caroline narrates. She tells us of a tale of a girl in school who worked as a stripper until 2AM then showed up for school and took extra classes. The football team, she tells us, would heat up quarters and throw them at her while she walked through the halls.
A "serial killer" dubbed a serial killer after first body was found kills the girl and they find marks of heated quarters on her legs. After her death, it appears the overly mature Caroline is the prettiest girl in school. She seduces her teacher and a classmate. As time goes on we discover the teacher has the persona of a psychotic character portrayed from his own novel and has developed an unhealthy need to continue his relationship with Caroline.
The movie makes clever use of juxtapositions to create humorous scenes. There are also slow scenes and slightly annoying first person narration.
The soundtrack was fairly lame. The climax scene is supposed to be a culmination of the scenes building up upon each other. In an indie, it is not necessarily predictable, but it is at least metaphorically or symbolically part of the movie.
This one was not. It was a complete let down and a lack of closure by the writer. Want to watch a clever indie, try "Chumscubber. Daydream Nation is a film that I very much want to like, in fact, I'd even call it a guilty pleasure.
Believe me, something about this film is charming. It has a nice atmosphere, style, tone, etc. Daydream Nation knows what it's trying to be. That alone is what keeps me from giving the movie anything higher than a three. Aside from the charm and a few subtleties involving a man in a white suit the film didn't really offer much. One of the main ideas the movie offers is identity, we hear a lot of Kat Dennings' character talking about how no one knows the real her, however, us as the audience never even know.
The most we learn about her is that she moved from the city and her mom died. Who is she other than that?Jun 18, · Sorry in advance for this truth-bomb, but: Burps are basically just farts that come out of your mouth.. Okay, they're cuter and don't normally smell like butt-farts do (bless up), but at the end.
