Pretty Funny

This film wasn't bad, nor good. For me it was pretty average. A lot of the film included Scary Movie laughs involving silly plot lines including spoofing Teen Wolf, Sixteen Candles, and Dirty Dancing among others. This movie revolves around Charlie, a teen from another city who moves to a town in California where dancing is banned and the people are complete idiots. Adjusting to the change with him, his sister Lori (Dominique Swain) falls in love with a janitor (Chris Kattan) who happened to be the dance instructor of the school until dancing was banned. Lori's relationship with the janitor gets more heated after going to Gabriel's dance studio which is a kept secret from the town. The ban on dancing makes angst-full Lori furious of the dancing ban and plans with Gabriel to do a show at a decathlon where Charlie, with the help of his mentor, the gay Mr. Yamagashi (James Hong), will hopefully win after he makes a blindsided deal with the school bully, Kip (Joey Kern) that if he lost, he would move out and that Kip could kick his butt as much as he wanted. Along for the wild ride is Charlie's platonic best friend, Billie (Nicki Clyne) who has a secret crush on him, but can't seem to tell him. Also Kip's girlfriend, Kimberly (Brittany Daniel), who plays Charlie's love interest, does a pretty good job at using Charlie when he's at his weakest. This movie i had to admit was quite funny. Okay, hilarious! Although not as good as i thought it was going to be, the cast does the best they can to make the plot and stories fun to watch. I recommend this to all of you guys that just like to have fun and like to see stupid people do stupid things.

I made it all the way to the end....

I watched the entire movie without stopping and deleting it from the DVR. That's about the best thing I can say about "Totally Awesome". The thing about spoofs is that they only work if they consistently satirize their targets. They need to find humor in parts of the original films that weren't "funny" and find humor in them. This is the biggest flaw of "Totally Awesome". The movie is just lame setups, horrendous overacting and a few interesting ideas that never quite hit the mark. There is very little actual satire. Mr. Miyagi got more laughs in the original Karate Kid than his "spoof" counterpart did during this entire train wreck of a movie. Dominique Swain is another big offender here. I'm sure she was directed to completely overact, but she completely blew past the line separating funny from downright annoying. With maybe one or two exceptions, I found her performance almost unbearable. It's not all doom and gloom, after all I did get through the whole thing without deleting it. I'm not normally a huge Tracy Morgan fan, but he completely stole the show with the brief role he was given. Even by spoof standards Joey Kern might have been a bit too over-the-top as the nemesis, but he did get me to laugh more than once. There were also some laughs to be found in some of the dancing scenes and the lead actor looked eerily like C.Thomas Howell from "Soul Man" when in black-face. I guess it's not a complete waste of 100 minutes, but it's not hard to realize why this script wound up as 'made for VH1' filler either. I have a sneaking suspicion that this was shot for theatrical release or possibly direct-to-DVD. The transfer is clearly cropped from some widescreen film format. It's pretty easy to see why it never made it that far. (Altho from what I hear, this is being released on DVD. Oh boy.) Anyways, this one misses far more than it hits. When you are constantly reminded how much superior the original 80's movies are instead of being inspired to laugh at their silliness, the makers of the spoof have dropped the ball. Who thought the movie "Soul Man" was a good idea? Apparently the same folks that thought "Totally Awesome" was a good idea.

Totally Awesome Stoner Flick

This movie is what it is. A spoof movie. It's not supposed to be "great". For all those who say it sucked for lacking a plot I say to you, move along because you obviously do not know a hilarious movie when you see one. It's a great movie to watch when you're baked. The directed also directed "Half Baked" starring Dave Chapelle. If you wanna have lots of out loud laughs, watch this movie. If you are looking for a serious movie, then this is not for you. It's made by VH1 people, come on. It's supposed to be a joke. I personally enjoyed Dominique Swain's spazzy loud character. She was hilarious. So basically, if you are a stoner then you wont be disappointed.
